Title: MusselSeedConservationAreas
Geospatial Data Presentation Form: vector digital data
Description:
Abstract: To conserve and provide for effective management of unique mussel areas, seed mussel conservation areas will be designated by the Department of Marine Resources. These areas will be selected based upon several considerations, to include either singly or in combination but not limited to: geographic extent, density, population size distribution, extent subject to winter mortality, and condition.Full descriptions of these areas are described in Chapter 12.06 of Maine DMR rule as well as in the attributes of the GIS data.
Purpose: Locations where collection of mussel seed is regulated in accordance with Section 12.06.
