Kiełpińskie Clearly a spherical covariance structure with defined nugget (i.e., intercept>0) and kappa (sill) parameters The spatial autocorrelation becomes neglible at distances > 227 or 289 meters

10
Rumian Clearly a spherical covariance structure with defined nugget (i.e., intercept>0) and kappa (sill) parameters The spatial autocorrelation becomes neglible at distances > 900 (sA- tot) or 600 (sA-SED) meters

11
Lidzbarskie No clear spherical omnidirectional covariance structure Should probably fit a directional variogram as there seems to be a longitudinal gradient in abundance

12
Dąbrowa Wielka Not a clear spherical covariance structure with defined nugget and kappa (sill) parameters The spatial autocorrelation becomes neglible at distances > 524 (total) or 640 (SED) meters Should be used with caution

Conclusions Uncertainty due to replicated sampling is within 5 %, on the condition that the coverage > 5. The spacial variation must be accounted for when designing the survey or when analyzing the data. For Wel lakes the autocorrelation distances are between 200 and 1000 m. This may change with changes in fish spacial distribution. Rumian data do not show statistically significant differences between 2009 and 2010, however temporal variation may change both seasonally and annually. There is for sure potential variability due to operator handling, both during collecting and analyzing the data. There is therefore an urgent need for a standard operation proceedure to assure comparability of results.
