2015 Regulatory GIS Data

The Alaska Department of Fish & Game provides AWC maps in a digital Geographic Information System (GIS) format. These datasets (NAD 83) were utilized to produce the 2015 regulatory update revision of the Catalog and Atlas. The zipped download files contain shapefiles for the point and line data layers in Albers projection.

Stream numbers, locations, extent of cataloged habitat and species utilization of a given stream may change from year to year. Additionally, new streams are being added on an annual basis. It is the responsibility of the user to maintain an up to date version of the electronic data files. This data is not a legal document and should not be relied upon for making decisions regarding permitting needs. The user should contact the local office of the ADF&G to determine if a permit is required under AS 16.05.871 - 881 and 5 AAC 95.011.
