AB - An optimal control problem is studied for a predator-prey system of PDE, with a logistic
growth rate of the prey and a general functional response of the predator. The control
function has two components. The purpose is to maximize a mean density of the two species
in their habitat. The existence of the optimal solution is analyzed and some necessary
optimality conditions are established. The form of the optimal control is found in some
particular cases.
