Falkland Islands Proposed Inshore MMA

The dataset (a polygon feature) describes the proposed Falklands Inshore Marine Management Area. The boundary has been drawn in the context of the Assessment of Fishing Closure Areas as Sites for wider marine management in the Falkland Islands. A public counsultation took place in April/May 2017 and the boundaries are still at the "proposal" stage and are not considered final.

Lineage The dataset was created in QGIS, and is based primarily on the Falkland Islands 3nm Fisheries exclusion zone (FK-SAERI-416) but with extensions to the west around the Jason Islands chain, to the north of Cape Dolphin and to the SW of Bird Island. Evidence supporting this boundary is from a variety of sources, and includes information on globally significant populations of seabirds. Further data sources are listed in the AFCAS report. Notice that the surface coverage of the polygon refers only to the area of sea; the land is excluded.
