The critical habitat designation for bocaccio (Puget Sound/Georgia Basin DPS) includes nearshore areas, from the extreme high water line out to a depth of 30 meters relative to mean lower low water, and areas deeper than 30 meters that contain or are adjacent to highly rugose habitat. The critical habitat designation includes the marine waters above (the entire water column) the nearshore and deepwater areas.These data do not show U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) sites determined to be ineligible for designation nor excluded areas associated with Indian lands or certain additional DOD sites. No areas were excluded based on economic impacts. See the regulatory text in the final rule (79 FR 68042) for descriptions of ineligible and excluded areas.
