Abstract:
Created as part of a 2012 BOEM study on outer continental shelf (OCS) renewable energy space-use conflicts, this data contains the commercial and recreational fishing locations off the Pacific coast of Washington, Oregon and California. The purpose of the study was to begin to identify potential space-use conflicts between OCS renewable energy development and other uses of the ocean environment and recommend measures that BOEM can implement in order to promote avoidance or mitigation of such conflicts, thereby facilitating responsible and efficient development of OCS renewable energy resources. The ethnographic data was created by engaging individuals and small groups in one on one guided discussions, and making handwritten shapes on paper maps to depict fishing locations. These commercial and recreational fishing locations have since been condensed into a single layer.
Purpose:
To support coastal and ocean planning and other activities pursuant to the Energy Policy Act, Coastal Zone Management Act, Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, National Environmental Policy Act, Rivers and Harbors Act and the Submerged Lands Act.

Shapefiles provided by BOEM, condensed and combined into one layer by NOAA OCM.
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
1. Import shapefiles into a single gdb. 2. Check that the projection of each feature class is NAD 83. 3. Dissolve each feature class into a multipart feature polygon. 4. Some features (esp. Commercial Tuna) will need to be cleaned up because of gaps, overlaps and slivers in the source data. 5. Union the commercial/recreational feature classes of each species (excepting shrimp and spot prawn) into a single feature class. 6. Merge overlapping features and preserve commercial/recreational attributes. 7. Union all feature classes into a single feature class. 8. Explode all multi-part polygons. 9. Merge overlapping features and feature slivers, preserving commercial/recreational/species attributes. 10. Clip data to: http://services.arcgis.com/P3ePLMYs2RVChkJx/ArcGIS/rest/services/USA_Counties/FeatureServer. 11. To add in depth data, go to: http://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/mgg/coastal/crm.html. 12. Select each grid volume, 6-8 and download the ARC ASCII and XYZ files for each. 13. Convert using ArcToolBox - Conversion Tool - to Raster- ACSII to Raster – Batch. 14. Project all rasters to NAD 83. 15. Mosaic using ArcToolBox - Data Management Tool – Raster - Raster Dataset - Mosaic, selecting Mosaic Operator as Blend and Mosaic Colormap mode as Match. 16. Extract using ArcToolBox- Spatial Analyst Tools –Extraction -Extract by Attributes, selecting WHERE “VALUE” less than 0. 17. FocalMean using ArcToolBox - Spatial Analyst Tools – Neighborhood - Focal Statistics, selecting Neighborhood as Rectangle, Height as 50, and Width as 50. 18. Contour using ArcToolBox - Spatial Analyst Tools – Surface - Contour, using Contour interval of 50. 19. Select by location and add attributes for intersecting features of contours. 20. Integrate feature class to update integrity of shared feature boundaries. 21. Delete all superfluous fields. 22. Check geometry and project data into WGS 1984 Auxiliary Sphere.
