Description:
Abstract:
This data is to visualize the regulated area for Northern and Southern Virginia State Waters as it pertains to the Bottlenose Dolphin Take Reduction Plan as designated by 71 FR 24776, April 26, 2006, regulations for various gillnet restrictions. Regulated State waters include marine and tidal waters, within 3 nautical miles (5.56 km).<http://www.nmfs.noaa.gov/pr/pdfs/fr/fr71-24776.pdf>
Purpose:
The purpose of these data is to visually represent the regulated area as it pertains to the Bottlenose Dolphin Take Reduction Plan. 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.

It is strongly recommended that careful attention be paid to the contents of the metadata file associated with these data to evaluate dataset limitations, restrictions or intended use. In no event will NMFS be liable to you or to any third party for any direct, indirect, incidental, consequential, special or exemplary damages or lost profit resulting from any use or misuse of this data. *** Proper Usage *** The information on government servers are in the public domain, unless specifically annotated otherwise, and may be used freely by the public. Before using information obtained from this server, special attention should be given to the date and time of the data and products being displayed. This information shall not be modified in content and then presented as official government material. This dataset was created to depict the boundaries of NMFS Regulated Areas in Southeast, Waters (Regulated Areas) only. The dataset should not be used for a legal definition. The dataset should not be used to infer information regarding the existence or details of other marine features or resources, including, but not limited to, navigable waters, coastlines, bathymetry, submerged features, or man-made structures. Users assume responsibility for determining the appropriate use of this dataset. *** Not the Legal Definition *** This Geographic Information System (GIS) dataset is not the legal definition of the Regulated Area. The description published in the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations is the only legal definition. This dataset and metadata document provide a broad overview of a subset of applicable fishing regulations, restrictions and requirements, protected areas, or essential fish habitat; it is not a substitute for the actual regulations. Users are encouraged to read the applicable regulations in conjunction with use of this dataset. *** Temporal Considerations *** Regulated Area boundary definitions are subject to change or modification. Published datasets may represent historic, current, or future Regulated Areas. When changes to regulations affect this dataset, it will be archived and replaced by an updated version as soon as feasible. Approved Regulated Area boundaries may also be published prior to their effective date. It is the user’s responsibility to ensure the applicable Regulated Area boundaries are being used. *** Shorelines/Base Layers *** The accuracy of this dataset is dependent upon the accuracy and resolution of the datasets (e.g., shoreline, bathymetry, shared administrative boundaries) used in the creation process. Source datasets used are specified in the metadata. These data sources were selected for their suitability to a broad audience, and may not be suitable for specific uses requiring higher-resolution information. Coastlines change. Unless otherwise noted, where the NOAA Medium Resolution Shoreline is used, assume the regulatory boundary reaches the most current coastline delineation available.

Process_Description:
Several sources were used to create the BDTRP regulated areas: the Harbor Porpoise Take Reduction Plan exemption lines were used as a guide for part of the landward side of the area from NMFS GARFO; the USGS 1:100,000 scale shoreline was used as a background to digitize a generalized landward line; 72 COLREGS were digitized from NOAA Navigational Charts; and the ESRI Data StreetMap USA bridges layer was used. The source for the 3 nautical mile/ state waters line was NOAA-NOS. These lines were merged depending upon the regulations in the BDTRP.
