Commercial Fishing (The user selects which, if any, of these parameters to include.)

Commercial shell fishing areas. Having a commercial presence in a location presents a lower priority site for restoration socioeconomically (use conflict area). Any area mapped within the polygons in this file are considered a low priority (value of 1). Areas not identified are considered a priority and receive a priority ranking of 2.

Commercial lobster fishing areas. Having a commercial presence in a location is not suitable for restoration socio-economically (use conflict area). The metadata do not contain any description of attributes, so any area mapped within the polygons in this file should be considered unsuitable (value of 1). Areas not identified are considered suitable and should receive a 2.

Commercial trawl fishery areas. Having a commercial presence in a location presents a low priority site for restoration socio-economically (use conflict area). The metadata do not contain any description of attributes, so any area mapped within the polygons in this file should be considered a low priority (value of 1). Areas not identified are considered a priority and should receive a priority ranking of 2.

Recreational Fishing (The user selects whether to include this parameter and determines if recreational fishing is desirable or not for establishing priorities.)

Recreational fishing areas. Having a presence here is of questionable priority for restoration (use conflict area). Allow the user to determine whether the presence of recreational fishing is good or bad. The metadata do not contain any description of attributes, so any area mapped within the polygons in this file should be considered for priority. If the user dictates that recreational fishing is a high priority, give the polygons a 2. If the user indicates that recreational fishing is a low priority, give a 1.
