Summary

The annual monitoring data from the Submerged Vegetation Monitoring Program provide detailed spatial data on eelgrass distribution at selected sites in greater Puget Sound in Washington State.

Description

This dataset includes 2000-2012 data collected annually by the Washington Department of Natural Resources to monitor the abundance of eelgrass in greater Puget Sound. This transect point feature class includes all transect data within the San Juan Islands/Straits region.

Credits

The creation of this dataset and the collection of the underlying data was funded by the Washington State Aquatic Lands Enhancement Account.
