Layer: Aquaculture (ID: 15)

Name: Aquaculture

Display Field: name

Type: Feature Layer

Geometry Type: esriGeometryPolygon

Description: Aquaculture, also known as aquafarming, is the farming of aquatic organisms such as fish, crustaceans, mollusks, and aquatic plants. The presence and location of aquaculture sites were derived from multiple state websites and include only those in coastal and marine saltwater areas. The following states are included in this layer: Alaska, California, Connecticut, Florida, Louisiana, Maine, New York, North Carolina, Rhode Island, Virginia, and Washington. The data team is continuing to work with aquaculture coordinators in each coastal state to fill current data gaps and improve the accuracy of existing data sets. As such, these data should be considered a work in progress. The user is encouraged to read the metadata of each individual state’s data carefully, since geometry, attribute details, and timeliness are not necessarily consistent among data sets used to develop this layer. The naming conventions for the type of aquaculture site (license versus lease) were retained as they are defined and administered by the individual states. The layer is shown by the area type: finfish, shellfish, and other (algae, crustacean, or unknown farming). Details of each state’s data source are described in the data-processing section. The data are not a complete collection of aquaculture locations within the U.S., nor are the locations to be considered exact. These data are intended for coastal and ocean planning.
