a) Overview with fishing intensity grid, frames indicate location of panels b, c and d. b) Northern region, c) Central region and d) Southern region. Bold black areas in panel b, c, d indicate the locations of National Marine Sanctuaries, the hatched areas indicate locations of CCA-West closures and the stippled areas indicate Essential Fish Habitat closures. The upper legend (0–4) shows habitat suitability, higher is more suitable. The lower scale shows fishing intensity (km per km2).
