Description:
Abstract:
Designated Essential Fish Habitat (EFH) areas where fishing or the use of fishing gears has been restricted or modified in order to minimize the adverse effects of fishing on EFH, as required by Section 303(a)(7) of the Magnuson Stevens Act.
Purpose:
The purpose of these data is to visually represent spatial information for areas in which fishing has been restricted to minimize the adverse effects of fishing to EFH. The spatial extent of these areas will be calculated and used in partial satisfaction of the performance metric reporting requirements of the Habitat Program.
Supplemental_Information:
The original dataset was created in ESRI ArcGIS 9.2 and 9.3.1

Access_Constraints:
These data are publicly accessible and downloadable via http://www.habitat.noaa.gov/protection/efh/newInv/index.html. Look under "Information & GIS Download" tabs.
Use_Constraints:
Users are advised that the spatial representation of essential fish habitat is for informational purposes only and should not be solely relied on for regulatory purposes. Implementing regulations [50 CFR 600.815(a)(1)(iv)(B)] specify if there are differences between the descriptions of EFH in text and maps the textual description is ultimately determinative of the limits of EFH as described in the Amendment.

Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
All attributes compiled from the published Code of Regulations (Federal Register) were copied/pasted from the PDF version of these documents. Hyperlinks to these documents were verified. Other attributes were checked for consistency and accuracy. The acres value was computed by multiplying the GIS generated shape_area (meters) by 10.7639104 (conversion factor from square meters to square feet) and then divided by 43560 (conversion factor from square feet to acres) to obtain the acres. No tests for logical consistency were performed on this data. The data was visually inspected to confirm that: it contains the requisite points and boundaries from the Federal Register text description.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
If the source feature did not include metadata indicating how it was constructed, then each feature was verified against the source feature by recreating it in ArcGIS.
Completeness_Report:
This data set is considered complete as of August 2011.

Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Due to the various sources used in compiling this dataset, of which many sources did not have a published accuracy report or scale listed, no statement of accuracy can be made here. Three ESRI bugs were discovered during the course of this project that impacted the actual process of constructing these data for verification with the source data or in the compilation of the data itself: In an ArcMap edit session: NIM049706: With the units set to Degrees Minutes Seconds, if 'DMS' is added to the Lat value (470'0"N DMS), when any of the functions are invoked (Flash, Add Point, etc.), the Lat value defaults to the Southern hemisphere (470'0"S). NIM049797: Absolute XY: With the data frame set to GCS_WGS_1984, only two of ten cited longitude-latitude input formats work. Outside of an ArcMap edit session: NIM050616: In the Go To XY tool, with the units set to Degrees Decimal Minutes, the decimal minutes values increase by one minute each time any of the six associated tools (Pan To, Zoom To, Flash, etc.) are clicked. Based on these discoveries the decision was made to use the GoTo XY method for entering coordinates because the point is not appearing in the southern hemisphere. The GoTo XY method has the added advantage of retaining the entered coordinate values when the graphics were converted to a featureclass. The changes that NIM050616 caused were deemed less significant as most of the published coordinates do not use the minute designation. Further research is required to determine if the changing of the values means that the change is actually occuring on the map or if the change is only affecting the display. The work around for entering coordinate values in an edit session would have significantly added to the process.

Process_Description:
This project began with a list of 100 potential sites that MIGHT be restricted to fishing under EFH authority. This list was drawn from a shapefile that had been derived from the MPA Inventory. The table was exported to an Excel spreadsheet where additional columns of attributes were added to aid in the verification process. The contents of this list were checked, verified, deleted and added to as further information was discovered.

Process_Description:
To create the area depicting the "Groundfish EFH in the Pacific Coast EEZ shoreward of 100 fathoms" the coordinate points were downloaded from the NW regional website, imported into ArcMap as an XY event, and converted to a featureclass. A line was created by snapping to the 100 fathom points in the order listed by id_area. A temporary polygon was created by cutting out a portion of the West coast using the US state boundary polygon. Two additional lines were constructed that overlapped the line from the 100 fathom points and the West Coast boundary polygon at both the north and south ends. The ArcInfo command "Feature to Polygon" was used to create a new polygon from these parts. The new polygon was intersected with EFH off Pacific Coast (efh_polygons) to create a new area. Finally, this area was dissolved to create one multipart polygon.

Process_Description:
Split areas on the West coast that are between the shoreline (both mainland and island) and the 3 nautical mile boundary that marks the beginning of the EEZ to indicate whether area is in or out of state waters. Process: Constructed a temporary polygon using the 3 nautical mile EEZ boundary (ca_or_wa_3nm_poly). Created a temporary dataset of the existing Pacific areas (source 25). Erased the tmp_src25 using ca_or_wa_3nm_poly. Visually verified each area to determine if it was captured correctly. Visually compared new area to old area. Recalculated area for both in and out of state. Added field called 'instatewaters'. Added Y or N to each record to indicate whether it is inside or outside of state waters. Replaced features in new data set.

Starting on page 60133 of Source 19, the coordinates for Abrir La Sierra Bank, Bajo de Cico, Red hind spawning aggregation areas, Mutton snapper spawning aggregation area, Tourmaline Bank, were used to construct point features. Starting on page 62081 of Source 7, the coordinates for Grammanik Bank were used to construct point features. Polygons for each feature was then constructed by connecting the points. Each feature was copied to the Caribbean data set. The PRVI_EEZ feature (Caribbean EEZ) (Source 1) was copied to the Caribbean data set.

The Southern Fishery Management Area was created by a) deleting the grids from the "statistical areas for the offshore Eastern USA" polygon based on the grids depicted on page 40 of the 1998 Monkfish FMP (Source 6); b) creating a temporary polygon using the Atlantic EEZ (Source 2) as the polygon's western boundary and using that polygon to 'erase' the Eastern side of the statistical area; c) creating a temporary polygon using a portion of the US State boundaries (Source 23) to 'erase' the Western side of the statistical area; d) cutting the northern boundary of the statistical areas polygon based on the description on page 38 of the 1998 Monkfish FMP (Source 15) and confirmed in email correspondence with the NE region (Source 17); e) dissolving the grids of the statistical areas data set into one polygon. The feature was copied to the NE_MA data set.
