EMIS - Favourable feeding habitat of adult Atlantic bluefin tuna (ABFT) Monthly 2003-2014 (frequency of occurence, %)

Collection: EMIS : Environmental Marine Information System 

Description

The favourable feeding habitat of the Atlantic bluefin tuna 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 surface temperature and sea surface height anomaly. More information: https://fishreg.jrc.ec.europa.eu/fish-habitat, Peer-reviewed publication: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0079661116000070

Lineage information

General information: Model performance is assessed against the distance of presence data to closest habitat. For juvenile bluefin tuna, 75% of observations are closer than 0.7 km of favourable feeding habitat (n = 952). For adult bluefin tuna, 75% of observations are closer than 6.5 km of favourable feeding habitat (n = 6270).
