About this map

These data were developed to review area closures to commercial fishing on the West Coast. Essential Fishe Habitat (EFH) Conservation Areas were closed to fishing in 2006 to protect important habitat for groundfish (rockfish, flatfish, and others). The data were developed by Curt Whitmire and Marlene Bellman at NOAA, National Marine Fisheries Service
