Figure 4b. Suitability index for spotted seatrout adult spawning response to depth. The suitability value of the spawning habitat component decreases linearly as distance increases from a seagrass bed. The habitat suitability is illustrated here as a red gradient with values from 0.0 (white) to 1.0 (darkest red).
