Access Constraints Use Constraints: 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., Access Constraints: These data are publicly accessible and downloadable via http://www.habitat.noaa.gov/protection/efh/newInv/index.html.
