Species and Habitat App

Web mapping app that displays and queries spatial data in the West Coast Region for Endangered Species Act ranges, critical habitat designations, and Magnuson-Stevens Act essential fish habitat. Users can generate a printable spatial query report.

The Species and Habitat App displays and queries spatial data for marine and anadromous species listed under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) and habitat areas protected under the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (MSA). The core datasets are ESA-listed species ranges, critical habitat designations, and essential fish habitat (EFH).

These datasets are intended to assist the public and our partners with visually interpreting federal regulations. However, these data do not constitute legal definitions. Please refer to NOAA Fisheries’ Federal Register rules and the Code of Federal Regulations for legal definitions of threatened or endangered species, critical habitat designations, or essential fish habitat.

Not all ESA-listed species ranges, critical habitat designations, and essential fish habitat under the jurisdiction of NOAA Fisheries are displayed in this app. Only those within the West Coast Region that have available data are displayed. 

NOAA Fisheries’ West Coast Region includes Idaho, Oregon, Washington, California, and U.S. marine waters adjacent to those states.
