Description:
Abstract:
These data represent the geographic area described in Title 50 CFR Part 622.183 (b)(6)(ii) Fisheries of the Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico, and South Atlantic, Subpart I—Snapper-Grouper Fishery of the South Atlantic Region, Seasonal closures, Seasonal closure of the commercial black sea bass pot component of the snapper-grouper fishery, From December 1 through March 31, as of 12/29/2016.
Purpose:
The purpose of these data is to visually represent the seasonal and/or area closures for GIS analysis and display. This does not necessarily reflect the latest information contained in the Code of Federal Regulations. Users must assume responsibility to determine the appropriate use of these data as the currency and/or accuracy of these data cannot be guaranteed.

NOT FOR LEGAL USE. Users be advised that the accuracy of this dataset is somewhat dependent upon the accuracy of the state/federal marine boundary and EEZ data if it was used in the data creation process. For more details on this process, see the process description. The current text description from Title 50 Part 622, Fisheries of the Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico, and South Atlantic, is always the one, true definition of the seasonal and/or area closures. These, or any other depictions, are for information purposes only and shouldn't be relied on for regulatory purposes.

Data_Quality_Information:
Logical_Consistency_Report:
No tests for logical consistency were performed on this data. The data was visually inspected to confirm that: it contains the requisite points and boundaries from the CFR text description.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
No specific test was performed on the dataset. For the state/federal marine boundary and EEZ lines, obtained from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's National Ocean Service, the data is a reflection of the largest scale raster nautical charts of the area. The number of decimal places used in the output format does not imply an accuracy level higher than the source chart documents. The positional point data from Title 50 CFR Part 622 is accurate to the distance published in that source, varying by closed area, from one second to one minute of latitude or longitude.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Created polygon of the closed area using Esri software from the points generated in the previous process step. If the closed area shared a border with the EEZ, or the state/federal marine boundary, the EEZ or state water shapefile was combined with the geographic area described in Title 50 CFR Part 622 to complete the polygon.
