Title: Massachusetts Ocean Management Plan
Other_Citation_Details:
These data were created to support the Oceans Act of 2008, signed by Gov. Deval Patrick May 28, 2008. The legislation requires Massachusetts to develop a first-in-the-nation comprehensive plan to manage development in its state waters, balancing natural resource preservation with traditional and new uses, including renewable energy. For text of the Oceans Act, see <http://www.mass.gov/legis/laws/seslaw08/sl080114.htm>. The final ocean management plan provides a comprehensive framework for managing, reviewing and permitting proposed uses of state waters. In addition to the management and administrative frameworks of the final plan, an accompanying volume provides a comprehensive baseline assessment cataloguing the current state of knowledge regarding human uses, natural resources, and other ecosystem factors in Massachusetts and surrounding ocean areas.

Description:
Abstract:
Based on compatibility considerations, exclusionary criteria were used to identify commercial-scale wind energy areas. These data show all of the merged exclusionary criteria for the compatibility assessment for commercial-scale wind energy in the Massachusetts ocean management planning area: - One mile from inhabited shoreline - Coast Guard-designated navigation areas (shipping channels and traffic lanes, precautionary areas, anchorage areas, pilot boarding areas) - Eelgrass and intertidal flats - Ferry routes - High concentrations of avian resources: nesting, staging, and critical foraging areas for Roseate Tern; nesting, staging, and core foraging areas for special concern tern species (Arctic, Least, Common); Long-tailed Duck; colonial coastal waterbirds - High concentrations of whale populations: North Atlantic Right Whale core habitat - Areas of significant commercial fishing effort and value: high fishing activity by effort and value - Direct transit navigation routes for shipping and fishing: AIS, VMS - Regulated airspace
Purpose:
These data were used in the development of a comprehensive ocean management plan to protect critical marine resources and foster sustainable uses in Massachusetts state waters as mandated in the Oceans Act of 2008.

Process_Description:
The following exclusionary criteria datasets were merged using the union tool:
One Mile from Inhabited Shoreline Shipping Lanes Precautionary Areas Anchorage Areas Pilot Boarding Areas Eelgrass Intertidal Flats Ferry Routes Roseate Tern Core Habitat Special Concern (Arctic, Least, and Common) Tern Core Habitat Long-tailed Duck Core Habitat Colonial Waterbirds Important Nesting Habitat North Atlantic Right Whale Core Habitat High Effort and Value Commercial Fishing Automatic Identification System (AIS) Vessel Monitoring System (VMS) Massachusetts Aeronautics Commission (MAC) Aviation Buffers
The output of this union was then dissolved and clipped to the Massachusetts ocean management planning area.
