The Data Working Group met yesterday and was able to identify workplan tasks that emerged from the Network meeting, prioritize data layers for development from our BOEM funding and identified the EFH synthesis layers that we want to start ingesting in our Portal (further detail below). You can read the full call notes here.

- Kelp Distribution (by species)
- Littoral Cells
- Biogenic Habitat Layers (Corals and Sponges, predicted and observed)
