Declared fish habitat area plans

Using area plans

Declared fish habitat area (FHA) plans indicate the outer boundaries (or limits) of FHAs; however, it is important to note that excluded areas (e.g. navigation channels or individual lots) may be indicated on the FHA plan. Please check the Fisheries Regulation 2008 (Schedule 3) for details on the area included within the boundary of an FHA and its management.

Plans and descriptions

The plan and a short summary of each declared FHA are available for download in the table below. A number of these files are large and may take some time to download.
