Abstract : The Habitat Suitability Index (HSI) models and instream flow Suitability Index (SI) curves presented in this publication aid in identifying important variables that determine the quality of striped bass habitat. Facts, concepts, and opinions obtained from published and unpublished reports, a Delphi panel of 18 striped bass experts/authorities, and the Striped Bass Committee, Southern Division, American Fisheries Society, are synthesized and presented in a format that can be used for habitat impact assessment and development of management alternatives.
