Title: Entity point
Short Name: Entity point
Status: Completed
Abstract:

Airport: Location of airports, airfields, landing strips, helipads, etc., whether they are manned or unmanned. Aquaculture: Location of aquaculture sites and facilities. When known, the site name, owner/manager, and contact information are provided on the data tables for each map. Artisanal/Commercial Fishing: General areas where artisanal and commercial fishing take place. Queen conch harvest areas contributed to the largest number of sites, although other types of fishing areas are depicted as well. Fishing activities, especially harvest of lobsters, octopus, reef fish, etc. may take place throughout the study area. This information was provided by the UPR (University of Puerto Rico) Department of Marine Sciences (queen conch areas) and expert sources. Boat Ramp: Location of boat ramps. This information was gathered from overflight observations, aerial photographs, DRNA (Departamento de Recursos Naturales y Ambientales) information and expert sources. Coast Guard: Location of Coast Guard facilities. Dam: Locations of dams, especially major high dams on RSI-classified streams. Dams were mainly mapped based on information provided by the Puerto Rico Electric and Power Authority (PREPA). Designated Critical Habitat: Areas managed or regulated by the USFWS (U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service) or NMFS (National Marine Fishery Service) as critical habitat for federally-listed threatened and endangered species, under authority of the U.S. Endangered Species Act, as amended. The species involved, responsible agency, and contact information are provided on the data tables for each map. Dive Site: Location of recreational diving sites. This information was derived mainly from published guidebooks and expert sources. Fishing Association: Locations of fishing associations and fisheries cooperatives in coastal areas. These sites indicate areas with significant artisanal and commercial fishing interests. This information was provided by DRNA. Marina: Location of marinas. This information was gathered from overflight observations, aerial photographs, DRNA information, and expert sources. Recreational Beach: Location of recreational beaches used for activities such as swimming, sun-bathing, fishing, etc. This information was provided by expert sources. Recreational Fishing: Location of recreational fishing sites. This information was provided by DRNA and expert sources. Water Intake: Location of surface water intakes. For inland areas, intakes associated with Puerto Rico Aqueduct and Sewer Authority (PRASA) facilities are emphasized (mapped locations for most other intakes were not available). When known, the site name, owner/manager, and telephone number are provided on the data tables for each map. For PRASA intakes, highway addresses provided by USEPA staff are also included in the data tables. | Description Source: Research Planning, Inc.
