Calculates a combined value for prey preference and prey suitability standardised to a value between 0 and 1.

1 | ```
calc_suit_vect(nsc, nfish, sc_Linf, prefs, tau)
``` |

`nsc` |
A numeric value representing the number of length classes in the model. |

`nfish` |
A numeric value representing the number of species in the model. |

`sc_Linf` |
A numeric vector of length |

`prefs` |
An array of dimensions |

`tau` |
A matrix of dimensions |

`tau`

values are assigned to an array of dimensions `nsc`

, `nfish`

, `nsc`

and `nfish`

and multiplied by the array `prefs`

. This creates an array of dimensions `nsc`

, `nfish`

, `nsc`

and `nfish`

indicating prey suitability. Prey suitability is then standardised to sum to 1 for each predator species in each length class.

A list object of length `nfish`

. Each element in the list is an array of dimensions `nsc`

, `nsc`

and `nfish`

containing a value between 0 and 1 that represents prey preference and prey suitability for each species and length class.
