Data from: The potential for spatial distribution indices to signal thresholds in marine fish biomass

Emilie Reuchlin-Hugenholtz, Nancy L. Shackell & Jeffrey A. Hutchings
The frequently observed positive relationship between fish population abundance and spatial distribution suggests that changes in distribution can be indicative of trends in abundance. If contractions in spatial distribution precede declines in spawning stock biomass (SSB), spatial distribution reference points could complement the SSB reference points that are commonly used in marine conservation biology and fisheries management. When relevant spatial distribution information is integrated into fisheries management and recovery plans, risks and uncertainties associated with...
