Abstract:
The Shellfish Sampling Station datalayer was compiled by the Department of Fisheries, Wildlife and Environmental Law Enforcement's (DFWELE) Division of Marine Fisheries (DMF). These point locations range from sites for collecting water quality and shellfish samples, to marine biotoxin (PSP) samples to locations of marinas and mooring fields.
Purpose:
The purpose of this data set is to provide referencce material for the management of the Boston Harbor Islands National  Recreation Area.

Overview_Description:
Entity_and_Attribute_Overview:
This datalayer has a .PAT file with the following attribute associated with each point:
SHLFSHST-ID   Station id number.
GRW_AREACD  Designated shellfish growing area code. Each classification station is associated to one designated shellfish growing area.
CL_AREANM  Classification area name. Each classification station is also associated to one classification area (which is a sub-area of a designated shellfish growing area).
STAT_TYPE  Station type. In all cases this is CLASSIFICATION.
STAT_NAME  Station name.
STAT_DATE  Date station was established.
