The reason is that first, Z (and so F = Z - M) was positively correlated with stock size due to density-dependence and second, the lower bound of exploitation was negatively correlated with stock size, because an increase in stock size translated directly into an increase in the denominator of the exploitation rate, and catch did not increase proportionally.
