Description:
Abstract:
Essential fish habitat (EFH) regulations encourage regional fishery management councils to designate habitat areas of particular concern (HAPC) within areas of EFH in order to focus conservation priorities on specific habitat areas that play a particularly important role in the life cycles of federally managed species based on four criteria: (1) importance of the ecological function; (2) extent to which the habitat is sensitive to human-induced degradation; (3) extent development activities are or will stress the habitat; and, (4) the rarity of the habitat type. In the Gulf of Mexico the following areas are identified as HAPCs: the North and South Tortugas Ecological Reserves, East and West Flower Garden Banks, Florida Middle Grounds; Madison-Swanson Marine Reserve; Pulley Ridge and the following reefs and banks of the northwestern Gulf of Mexico: Stetson; McNeil; Bright Rezak; Geyer; McGrail; Bouma; Sonnier; Alderice; and Jakkula.
Purpose:
The purpose of these data is to visually represent the textual description of the EFH HAPCs in the Gulf of Mexico.
Supplemental_Information:
Section 303(a)(7) of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Management and Conservation Act (16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq) requires the National Marine Fisheries Service and regional fishery management councils to (1) describe and identify EFH for managed fisheries; (2) minimize to the extent practicable the adverse effects of fishing on such EFH; and (3) encourage the conservation and enhancement of such EFH.

Users are advised that the spatial representation of essential fish habitat is for informational purposes only and should not be solely relied on for regulatory purposes. Implementing regulations [50 CFR 600.815(a)(1)(iv)(B)] specify if there are differences between the descriptions of EFH in text and maps the textual description is ultimately determinative of the limits of EFH as described in the Amendment (GMFMC 2005)
