  1. Simulation results included three distances (500, 1000, and 3000 m) and two movement rates (0.5, 1.0 m s−1). Virtual fish (N = 1000/day) were swum through virtual receiver line, and detection of acoustic transmissions was simulated using daily range detection curves at four locations in Lake Huron
