This feature layer, utilizing data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), displays areas where fishing has been restricted or modified in order to minimize the adverse effects of fishing on Essential Fish Habitat (EFH). These fishing restrictions or modifications are required by Section 303(a)(7) of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act. EFH is a Congressional mandate that describes all waters and substrate necessary for fish for spawning, breeding, feeding, or growth to maturity. Essential Fish Habitat includes all types of aquatic habitat, such as wetlands, coral reefs, seagrasses and rivers. These habitats are “essential” because, without these prime locations, fish would not be able to survive.Essential Fish Habitat (EFH)Data currency: August 2011Data download: EFH Text Descriptions & GIS Data InventoryFor more information:What is Essential Fish Habitat?MetadataFor feedback please contact: ArcGIScomNationalMaps@esri.comThumbnail image courtesy of National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)Other Federal User Community federally focused content that may interest you Department of Commerce                               National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Open Data: USDOC                                           Open Data: NOAAFor NOAA content on ArcGIS Online, please visit NOAA GeoPlatform
