We present a web application for the simulation of a biological system. An electrically active fish and the corresponding charge relaxation derived from the Maxwell equations are presented. The transition from the equations to the numerical methods is performed with a finite volume discretisation scheme. The final approach to solve the system of resulting equations makes use of a high speed generic scientific simulation environment. The ability to delegate calculations to other hosts further ensures the high performance levels achieved by the highly optimised simulations.
