The low, medium and high bycatch loss scenarios use, respectively, point estimates of bycatch loss rate (ploss) at the 2.5th, 50th and 97.5th percentiles of the posterior distribution of the bycatch loss rate based on observations from Brothers et al. , and the expected bycatch loss scenario uses the entire posterior distribution of ploss in the calculation.
