Sensitivity of final mariculture opportunity scores to relative zero to one rescaling of individual metrics
Top 10 and bottom 10 countries shown for each choice of scaling. Rescaled (simple) was the final mariculture opportunity result when each country-specific metric was divided by the top-scoring country in that metric. Scaled to 90th [80th] percentile was the final result when each country-specific metric was divided by the 90th [80th] percentile country in that metric, with all countries above that percentile for that metric receiving a score of 1. Overall concordance between the rankings produced by the three scaling choices was high and significant (Kendall’s W 0.925; p<<0.05). 80th percentile scaling was used for all subsequent analyses.
Results of sensitivity analysis investigating the impact of the exclusion of individual variables on opportunity scores
Numbers represent the mean and standard deviation of the change in economic opportunity, nutritional opportunity, and seafood reliance scores, as well as overall mariculture opportunity score across countries (columns) when the global analysis is re-run without each variable (rows). Blank cells indicate no change (because removing, e.g., trade balance only affects the economic opportunity and final opportunity score, not the nutritional or seafood reliance scores).
