a,b, The normalized change in average fishing hours through time for displaced (a; n = 64) and non-displaced vessels (b; n = 254). c, The difference between a and b, highlighting areas where displaced vessels redistributed to, relative to non-displaced vessels. Note that displaced vessels allocated more hours to the Gilbert Islands and Line Islands (part of Kiribati’s EEZs), but also Tuvalu and the high seas surrounding PIPA and Kiribati’s EEZ. For ac, the black lines show EEZs and the red box outlines the PIPA.
