JEM Small Fish Density Model is an evaluation tool designed to produce daily small-fish density estimates at primary sampling units (PSUs) within the Florida Everglades. The model helps guide the evaluation of hydrologic scenarios produced by management agencies. The model equations are derived from the functional relationships between monitoring data on selected performance measures and a hydrologic parameter such as days since marsh last reflooded following a drought.
