Description:
Abstract:
These data represent the 50 CFR Part 622.34, Gulf EEZ seasonal and/or area closures as designated by Federal Register Vol. 61, No. 34934, July 3, 1996. Rules and regulations as amended through 70 FR 42511, July 25, 2005.
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 waters and EEZ data used in the creation process. For more details on this process, see the process description. The text description through 70 FR 42511, 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 FR text description; and the inside and outside of the polygons are where they should be.
Completeness_Report: Complete Pending NMFS PRD Review
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
No specific test was performed on the dataset. For the 3 nautical mile line 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 50 CFR Part 622.34 is accurate to the distance published in that source, varying by closed area, from one second to one minute of latitude or longitude.

Process_Description:
Created points and then polygons of the closed areas using ESRI software. If the closed area shared a border with the EEZ, or state water, the EEZ or state water shapefile was combined with the geographic area described in 50 CFR Part 622.34 to complete polygon.

Process_Description:
Merged separate shapefiles for each closed area to create one shapefile containing all the closed areas within the Gulf of Mexico EEZ.
