Abstract:
This shows the artificial reefs off the coast of Georgia. The goals of the Georgia artificial reef program are: 1.) The development of long-term fisheries habitat 2.) The creation of additional and more accessible recreational fishing opportunities 3.) The enhancement and support of local and regional fisheries management efforts. More information about the Georgia artificial reef program are available here: http://coastalgadnr.org/fb/ar.
Purpose:
This GIS dataset was created for purpose of describing artificial reef zones for the state of Georgia so that these data can be considered with respect to other data on coastal resources and activities.
