<p>Modelled changes in global yield as a function of <i>F</i> (expressed as a proportion of <i>F</i><sub><i>MMSY</i></sub> for all consumers of body mass > 100g) and selectivity. Each column presents results for one selectivity scenario (A to D, <a href="http://www.plosone.org/article/info:doi/10.1371/journal.pone.0133794#pone.0133794.t003" target="_blank">Table 3</a>) and panels show yields by consumer for (a) all individuals of any body mass, (b) body mass < 1 kg (small), (c) 1 kg to 10 kg (medium) and (d) > 10 kg (large).</p>
