Sepiella maindroni was once one of the four traditional marine products in our country. In order to evaluate the ecological capacity of Sepiella maindroni in the sea area of Zhongjieshan Islands, this study used Ecopath with Ecosim 6.5 (EwE) software to construct an Ecopath model composed of 17 functional groups in the sea area of Zhongjieshan Islands. The nutrient structure and energy flow characteristics of the sea area of Zhongjieshan Islands are analyzed from the ecosystem level, and the reasonable ecological capacity of the sea area of Zhongjieshan Islands is estimated by the model.The results show that the trophic level of each functional group in the marine ecosystem of the Zhongjieshan Islands is between 1-4.648, total primary production/total respiration is 4.539, the system Connectance Index is 0.478, the System Omnivory Index is 0.389, The trophic level of Sepiella maindroni is 3.562, and the Ecotrophic Efficiency is 0.306, indicating that the Ecotrophic Efficiency of each trophic level in the system is low and the energy is not fully utilized. There is still room for breeding and exile for the Sepiella maindroni. The model estimates that the ecological capacity of Sepiella maindroni is about 2t·km2.
