Coral HAPC Explorer

The Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council is considering changes to current Habitat Area of Particular Concern (HAPC) designation based on new information that has identified additional sensitive areas supporting deep-water corals in the Gulf. This map allows you to explore coral data and locations of current and recommended HAPCs. We understand that spatial data can be pretty complicated and often requires the use of expensive software, we hope this application allows you to easily visualize what the Council is up to with corals in the Gulf.

Launch the Coral HAPC explorer to view them in details. New HAPC’s established with Coral 9 are available from Coral 9 HAPC explorer
