Title: EMIS - Favourable feeding habitat of hake nurseries Monthly 1998-2016 (frequency of occurence, %)

Description

The favourable feeding habitat for the nurseries of hake (total length below 15 cm) is daily identified linking their ecological traits with environmental variables from satellite remote sensing and physical ocean models. The feeding habitat is mostly related to the occurrence of productive oceanic features (such as eddies) that are detected by satellite sensors of ocean colour (chlorophyll-a fronts). The physical variables used are sea bottom temperature and sea bottom current.

Geographic information
Lineage

General information: Model performance is assessed against the distance of presence data to closest habitat. For high abundance levels of year-0 hake (nurseries, > 8.4 kg/km2), 75% of observations are closer than 1 km of favourable feeding habitat (n = 178).
