CIR1523: Stressor-Response Model for the Spotted Sea Trout (Cynoscion nebulosus)

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).
