Users be advised that the accuracy of this data set is completely dependent upon the accuracy of the shoreline data used in the creation process. For more details on this process, see the process description. The text description in 44 FR 17711 is always the one, true definition of leatherback turtle critical habitat. These or any other depictions are for information purposes only and shouldn't be relied on for regulatory purposes.
