Table 2 Calculated home range size (km2) for each tarpon based on 50% and 95% Kernel utilization distribution (KUD) and 100% minimum convex polygon (MCP); number of center of activity (COA) points that fell on land and total percentage of COA points on land removed out of total COA points used for home range analyses

From: Movement patterns of juvenile Atlantic tarpon (Megalops atlanticus) in Brewers Bay, St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands

Fish ID Total COA points MCP 100% area (km2) KUD 95% area (km2) KUD 50% area (km2) COA points on land Percentage of COA points removed

  1. aIn this case 100% MCP is smaller than 95% KUD based on how they are calculated (see “Materials and methods”)
