Aquaculture Falklands 2014

The brown trout cages and mussel lines around Fitzroy for the only current trial for aquaculture in the Falklands were manually GPSed to create the polygonsrepresenting the area of the cages and lines up to the anchor points. The location where the boat is launched to go check on the cages daily is also included in the dataset. This was as in August 2014. More cages will be deployed in the future.
