Layer: Special-Use Area (ID: 10414)

Parent Layer: Marine Managed Areas

Name: Special-Use Area

Display Field: Site_Name

Type: Feature Layer

Geometry Type: esriGeometryPolygon

Description: This layer displays boundaries for Marine Managed Areas designated as "Special-Use Area" in the Southeast Atlantic. The purpose of this data is to increase awareness of restrictions and protections of marine life. To achieve this goal, this data lists the area name, its purpose, an overview of what is restricted and allowed, and its geographic boundary. This dataset includes Federal and State data from internet searches and downloads from official sources. However, additional municipally managed sites may exist that are not included. The MPA Inventory is a comprehensive catalog that provides detailed information for existing marine protected areas in the United States. Additionally, this feature class includes records included in the 2014 MPA Center Inventory that were not included in the updated inventory produced by the MPA Center and the Anthropocene Institute. The inventory provides geospatial boundary information (in polygon format) and classification attributes that seek to define the conservation objectives, protection level, governance and related management criteria for all sites in the database. The comprehensive inventory of federal, state and territorial MPA sites provides governments and stakeholders with access to information to make better decisions about the current and future use of place-based conservation. The information also will be used to inform the development of the national system of marine protected areas as required by Executive Order 13158.
