US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM)
  • Added 01 Sep 2016

These data delineate Rockfish Conservation Areas (RCA) off the West Coast of the United States for 2015. There are three types of areas closures depicted in this layer: Commercial Trawl Non-Groundfish, Commercial Trawl Groundfish, and Commercial Non-Trawl Groundfish. These areas represent closures to commercial fishing for non-groundfish with trawl gear, closed to commercial fishing for groundfish with trawl gear, or areas are closed to commercial fishing for groundfish with non-trawl gear, respectively. Closures may vary seasonally. Boundaries are lines that connect a series of coordinates that approximate particular depth contours. North/south boundaries are designated by specific lines of latitude. Keep in mind that Rockfish Management Areas are fairly dynamic and may change as often as 5 times per year.
