Abstract:
This shows the artifiical reefs off the coast of Florida. The artificial program in Florida has six main goals: "1.) Assure that long-term social, economic and quality of life values of artificial reefs benefit the local and regional economies of Florida. 2.) Utilize artificial reefs in scientific research to obtain a mechanistic and predictive understanding of how artificial reefs function ecologically and physically across spatial and temporal scales. 3.) Use artificial reefs as a component of fisheries management. 4.) Identify, procure and maximize new and existing sources of funding for artificial reefs. 5.) Improve intergovernmental coordination and public/private cooperation in artificial reef development. 6.) Foster public and private sector marine ecosystem stewardship and accurate understanding of artificial reef issues." More information about the Florida artificial reef program is available on the website: http://myfwc.com/conservation/saltwater/artificial-reefs/ar-program/
Purpose:
This GIS dataset was created for purpose of describing artificial reef zones for the state of Florida so that these data can be considered with respect to other data on coastal resources and activities.
