This dataset contains the boundaries of the Planning Areas of the NJ State Development and Redevelopment Plan (NJSDRP). Adopted March 1, 2001.

The State Plan's Statewide Policies are applied to the natural and built resources of the state through the designation of five Planning Areas. These Planning Areas reflect distinct geographic and economic units within the state and serve as an organizing framework for application of the Statewide Policies of the State Plan. Planning Areas are areas of land, not less than one square mile, that share certain conditions, such as population density, infrastructure systems, level of development, or environmental sensitivity. Planning Areas do not necessarily coincide with municipal or county boundaries, but define geographic areas that are suitable for common application of public policy. The State Plan anticipates continued growth throughout New Jersey in all Planning Areas. The character, location and magnitude of this growth vary among Planning Areas according to the specific character of the area. Each Planning Area has Policy Objectives that guide growth in the context of its unique qualities and conditions. The Policy Objectives also shape and define the application of the Statewide Policies in each Planning Area. Refer to the NJSDRP for further description of the geographic nature of Planning Areas.

Prime fishing areas have a demonstrable history of supporting a significant local quantity of recreational and commercial fishing activity. The Department first mapped prime fishing areas in the 1980s. Since the map is over 20 years old, it was determined in 2003 that an update was needed. Charter boat, party boat and private boat captains were surveyed to identify the areas they consider recreationally significant fishing areas or prime fishing areas. This information was then compiled and refined into a digital format.

Due to the nature of fishing grounds, the polygons depicted in this dataset do not constitute an exact boundary of a fishing ground. Due to the highly variable nature of the ocean environment, the features that contribute to the success as a fishing ground may shift spatially and temporally. The boundaries may be expanded as necessary to include areas with a demonstrable history of supporting a significant local intensity of recreational or commercial fishing activity.
