About species

Species are used in Echoview for the purposes of biomass estimation. Each region has four basic properties:

Species are defined on the Classes page of the EV File Properties dialog box and their properties assigned on the Species Properties dialog box.

Each region class defined on that same page is given a mix of species on the Species Allocation page of the Region class properties dialog box. This mix is used for estimating the biomass contained within regions of the specified class.
