Co-occurrence clumping scenario In spatial scenarios with clumped fishing sets, we modeled computational groups with 5 clumps of 5 sets each.
In the spatial scenario with fishing sets and sea turtles clumped in the same areas, the co-occurrence clumping scenario, the clumps (9x9 cells) for the sets and clumps (9x9 cells) for the turtles were identical.
Sets-only clumping scenario In the sets-only clumping scenario, when fishing sets were clumped but sea turtles were uniformly random, the direction of fishing was determined as it was in the independent clumping scenario.
125 turtles, and a set fishing among clumped turtles on average encountered 250 turtles.
