Description:
Abstract:
The NH Department of Environmental Services (NHDES) has compiled geographic information on the boundaries of aquaculture sites in NH's tidal waters. The coverage contains the boundaries of aquaculture sites that were licensed in 2015. Information is current as of 5/13/2015.
Purpose:
The purpose of this coverage is to compile all existing information about the extent of aquaculture resources in NH's tidal waters.

Lineage:
Statement: For all licenses except those noted below, polygons were created using coordinates provided by the NH Fish and Game Department (NHF&G). The polygons for 2015-06 and 2015-11 were created using the slip locations provided by NHF&G and telephone confirmation from both companies of their site dimensions. The polygon for 2015-xx (Cedar Point Shellfish) was drawn based on the description from the NHF&G license and from the operator, and sited by interpolation from aerial photography. The polygon for 2015-23 (Dr. Michael Chambers and Dr. Hunt Howell) was created from coordinates provided by NHF&G. Based on the coordinates and area of the site, a circle was created with the coordinates in the center and radius determined by the area. The polygon for 2015-02 was created based on telephone correspondence with Bruce Smith of NHG&G. He confirmed the vicinity of the site but could not provide coordinates. The polygon was created based on the description of the location and area provided in the license.
