This paper deals with a discrete-time prey-predator system with Holling type-IV function response in the presence of some alternative food to predator and harvesting of prey species. By theoretical analysis and numerical simulation, comparing with the system without harvesting, ecological equilibrium point of the system is removed if harvesting effort is changed, and the appropriate harvesting effort can increase the stability of the system. Moreover, optimal harvesting policy is obtained using Pontryagin’s maximum principle. Meanwhile, some numerical simulations verify our analytical results. This study also gains the maximum economic profit which is based on the ecological equilibrium. The suitable price of resources can control the excessive harvest to promote the sustainable development of species.
