Title: Groundfish Habitat Areas of Particular Concern (HAPC)
Geospatial Data Presentation Form: vector digital data
Online Linkage: http://www.pcouncil.org/habitat-and-communities/habitat/
Description:
Abstract: These data depict areas designated as Habitat Areas of Particular Concern (HAPC) for Pacific Coast Groundfish. Groundfish HAPC's include seagrass, canopy kelp, rocky reefs, estuaries, and specified areas of interest. HAPCs based on habitat type may vary in location and extent over time, and are determined by the defining characteristics that are described in detail in Amendment 19. For these reasons, these GIS data are only an approximation of the location of these HAPCs. The areas of interest HAPC are defined by discrete boundaries.
Purpose: These data were developed for National Marine Fisheries Service and Pacific Fishery Management Council to support implementation of Amendment 19 to the Pacific Coast Groundfish Fishery Management Plan (FMP).
