MPA and SAC Management Options: Interactive Maps

These files display the MPA and/or SAC, the management approaches and the protected features in a PDF. A management approach is not shown where it covers the entire protected area.

It should be noted that the minimum amount of information about the protected features is displayed. This keeps the file size small and therefore much more responsive to user action.

Every map has a Mercator projection and WGS 1984 datum. This will be familiar to anyone who uses Admiralty Charts. For each location the scale and standard parallel changes are detailed in the table below.
