Title: Table: FLS_WATER_BODY_GRID_CODES
Short Name: FLS_WATER_BODY_GRID_CODES
Status: Completed
Abstract:

Section of a water body where fishing ocurred. There are two main grid systems: The South Atlantic Statistical Grid, which uses actual coordinates to make up the codes , and the Gulf of Mexico Statistical Grid, that numbers areas that may comprise more than 1 degree square of latitude and longitude coordinates or even section of these squares, and are numbered from 1 to 25, starting around Key West Florida, following the coast of the Gulf of Mexico all the way to Mexico. A primary key on AREA_FISHED_CODE ensures that the waterbody codes are unique.
