Falkland Islands Potential Southern Falklands MMA: Option 1 of 3

The dataset (a polygon feature) shows the Option 1 (out of 3) for a potential Southern Falklands Marine Management Area. The area has been proposed as part of the AFCAS (Assessment of Fishing Closure Areas as Sites for wider marine management in the Falkland Islands) case study. The area is still classified as "proposed" as there is need of further discussion with the local stakeholders, including Falkland Islands Petroleum Licencee's Association (FIPLA) and the Falkland Islands Department of Mineral Resources (DMR).

Lineage The dataset, created in QGIS, was based on the 200m Gebco (2014) isobath, the Falkland Islands Outer Conservation Zone limit (FOCZ) and the location, in Falklands' waters, of the Burdwood bank (FK-SAERI-287 metadata record ID). Overlapping with the northern part of the Burdwood Bank are a number of hydrocarbon exploration licences. A buffer of 10km was drawn around these licence blocks, and any overlap with this 10km buffer and the proposed Option 1 was excluded.
