Preliminary Habitat Suitability Index Curves for Sauger

A Delphi exercise conducted on sauger (Stizostedion canadense) with a panel of 17 experts resulted in II habitat suitability index curves that associate various life stages or activities of sauger with 5 variables: velocity, depth, substrate type, temperature, and cover. The curves are preliminary but should be useful for assessing habitat suitability for sauger until empirical curves are developed and for focusing future research and information exchange.
