Item Identification

Title: GT-polygon
Short Name: GT-polygon
Status: Completed
Abstract:

Marine mammals depicted in the Virgin Islands atlas include whales and dolphins. Concentration areas and sensitive areas for humpback whales and sperm whales are specifically indicated on the maps. These areas include nearshore humpback migration routes, and humpback and sperm whale breeding and calving areas. It should be recognized that humpback and sperm whales, and other whales and dolphins, can occur throughout nearly all marine waters of the Virgin Islands. For this reason, "whales" and "dolphins" were added to the maps for nearly all marine waters of the Virgin Islands, to cover the potential occurrence of these resources (especially for species not directly addressed on the maps). | Description Source: Research Planning, Inc.
