Extended Data Fig. 6: The relationship between the difference in 2030 health outcomes under the high and base production scenarios and base scenario status.

From: Aquatic foods to nourish nations

Extended Data Fig. 6

Each point represents a country where point color indicates the difference in national micronutrient deficiency averages between the scenarios (blue=reduced deficiencies; red=increased deficiencies) and point size indicates the scale of nutrient deficiencies in the base scenario (small=few deficiencies; large=many deficiencies). The vertical line indicates zero difference in nutrient intakes between the high and base scenarios; positive values indicate increased nutrient intake under the high production scenario and negative values indicate reduced intake. The dashed horizontal line indicates the average Estimated Average Requirement (EAR) for all age-sex groups. Countries falling below this line often have more room for health improvements than countries falling above this line. Counter-clockwise from the top-left, the quadrants of each plot indicate countries with mean 2030 intakes in the base scenario that are: (1) higher than the mean EAR and higher than the high production scenario; (2) higher than the mean EAR but lower than the high production scenario; (3) lower than the mean EAR and lower than the high production scenario; and (4) lower than the EAR but higher than the high production scenario.
