Potential yield (crops/y) of tambaqui fed at 75% satiation and harvested at 600 g (yield_tambaqui_75_satiation_harvested_600)

Spatial distribution of potential yield (crops/y) of tambaqui fed at 75% satiation and harvested at 600g. Yield estimations for tambaqui were based on water temperature which in turn were predicted from air temperature. Mean maximum and minimum monthly air temperatures grids were provide by FAO's Agrometeorology group. In order to explore a range of commercial aquaculture possibilities by the use of the growth model, simulations were conducted for tambaqui, assuming two different feeding levels and two harvesting weights (600 and 1000 g). Feed application rates corresponding to 50% and 75% satiation were assumed to represent commercial aquaculture operations with low and high feeding rates, respectively.
