  1. Results of mixed effects models (p values, significant values indicated in italics) examining vertical activity space use (kernel utilisation distributions, KUDs) of Lethrinus miniatus by period and monitoring week. Area, percentage overlap and cumulative area by week were calculated for core (50 %) and extent (95 %) of activity space. Week was fitted as a natural spline with varying degrees of freedom (models with df = 3 provided best fits to the data for all estimates except 95 % vKUD and 95 % overlap estimates, where df = 7). Transformations of vKUD are indicated as asterisks (square root transformed) and crosses (arcsine square root transformed)
