The north and south ends of the polygon were closed with arcs extracted from the Dept. of Fish and Game's caltrawl coverage. San Francisco Bay is not included in the polygon. This layer is part of a collection of data created by the California Deparmtent of Fish & Game.This layer can be used to identify coastal area within 1 nm of the shoreline.
