Fisheries Prototype Managed Areas

Metadata Updated: March 1, 2024

This dataset represents a sample of areas for which NOAA Fisheries is the managing authority. These areas are meant to inform the development of the America the Beautiful Conservation and Stewardship Atlas and provide examples of broad-scale management measures that affect commercial and recreational fishing. As the America the Beautiful Conservation and Stewardship Atlas is refined, and as input from stakeholders is considered, additional areas may be added to this layer that expand on the complexity/diversity of fishery management practices.
