Today we are releasing several revisions and updates to Northeast Ocean Data’s interactive maps and web pages:

  • The Aquaculture map now shows aquaculture sites, shellfish management areas, Atlantic Surf Clam and Ocean Quahog Environmental Degradation Closures, and Food Safety Program Temporary Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning (PSP) Closures.

  • On the Maritime Commerce map, data have been reorganized and cartography has been revised.
  • On the home page, we revised the design and added a photo tile for upcoming map of restoration projects.
  • The maps overview page has updated information and a revised design.
  • On the Upcoming Products page, we posted new information on the commercial fishing, restoration, and recreation maps that are currently in development, and we revised the page design.
