The dataset contains the demarcation of trouts genetic reserves, with their identifier and information on the geographical area in which they stay. The trouts genetic reserve areas (Salmo trutta) are closed basins in which trout populations are native and have their own genetic charcteristics in all individuals.
The Cartography of Controlled Fisheries Zones contains the delimitation of the controlled fishing areas, with their identifier and information on the geographical area in which they are located (river, basin, municipality, etc.), the fishing periods and the corresponding rest days, information on the permits applied (type, modality, arts and baits, maximum number, etc.), and the fishermen's society that collaborates in their management. A controlled exclusive fishery zone is the course, stretch of course or the mass of water in which it is limited the fishing to contribute towards developing a model of sustainable exploitation of the fishing resources based mainly on the natural selfregeneration of the populations of species and the regulation of fishing pressure. They can be with dead or without dead.
Water bodies delimitation according to the cyprinids and salmonids family species.
The dataset contains the demarcation of the zones of free fishing without death, with its identifier and information on the geographic scope in which they are (river, river basin, municipality, etc.), the corresponding fishing periods, the arts and baits allowed in each area, and the fishermen's society that collaborates in its management. No-kill open fishing areas is a course, section of course or water mass in which the practice of the fishing has to be done on condition of returning immediately to the waters of origin, of the least harmful possible way, all the captured specimens. Fishing license it's the only requisite.
Limits and surfaces of the different hunting management figures in Catalonia, derived from Law 1/1970 of April 4, of hunting, and classified as special regime, and of classified land for common exploitation, as well as other semantic information relevant to its management.
Delineation of protected coastal aquifers inland basins of Catalonia.
The scope of coastal waters of Catalonia corresponds to that defined in the Administrative Framework (Chapter 1), following the definition contained in Article 2 of Directive 2000/60/CE. Thus, the scope of coastal waters extends from the coastline to the line located one mile away from the baseline that is used to determine the jurisdictional waters of the Spanish State, which is established in Royal Decree 2510/1977. In the stretches of the coast where the baseline deviates considerably from the shoreline, the scope of coastal waters includes inland waters (autonomous competence) and also a mile of territorial waters (or jurisdictional, state competence). On the coast of Catalonia, 50% of the baseline coincides with the coastline, and the other 50% is far from distances ranging from 3 miles (north of Cap de Creus, Maresme Sud, Barcelonès and Alcanar), at 9 miles (in the Bay of Roses) and at 11 miles (basins south of Cap de Salou).
WMS service for visualization in accordance with the requirements of the INSPIRE Network Services Regulation that allows to view information related to Theme 11 - Area management/restriction/regulation zones and reporting units, of Annex III of the INSPIRE Directive, in the geographical area of Catalonia. This information is part of the official geographic reference sets in Catalonia as mentioned in Annex 2 (Group III – 11 Area management/restriction/regulation zones and reporting units) of Decree 62/2010, of May 18, of the Cartographic Plan of Catalonia. The service allows the visualization of information of Area management/restriction/regulation zones and reporting units of Catalonia, produced by the Catalan Water Agency (ACA) and the Department of Climate Action, Food and Rural Agenda. The right of access or connection to the service is total (Level A, as established in the PCC).
The Directive defines the category "lake" as "a body of quiet superficial inland water " (Article 2) and specifies a lower limit of 0.5 km2 when establishing its rates (Annex II). At the level of Spain and based on preliminary CEDEX criteria, all those lakes with an area of more than 50 ha (0.5 km2) or all those with an area of more than 8 ha and exceeding 3 m in depth are included as bodies of water. The Agency through two agreements with research centers has proposed as bodies of water that could be assimilated to the category of lakes: 1 - Lakes and ponds of more than 0.5 ha of surface located at altitudes above 800 m and lakes below this level with a depth of more than 6 m (agreement with the CEAB-CSIC; Agency, 2003d). 2 - Wetlands located at altitudes below 800 and with a depth of less than 6 m (agreement with the UdG; Agency, 2004d). Also included in this category are the reservoirs of the inland basins of Catalonia.
In order to develop the Article 5 of the Directive, it is necessary to define in advance the basic river network of the demarcation on which the water bodies will be delimited. To do this, the river network extracted from the 1:50,000 scale topographic base of the Cartographic Institute of Catalonia (ICC, 2002) was used. On this basis, some background has been taken into account and some criteria have been applied that have served to establish the definitive scope of the river network. Background: These backgrounds are based on the following three considerations and sources: - Water Framework Directive: the classification of rivers according to system A of the Directive considers rivers with a drainage basin equal to or greater than 10 km2. - Centro de Estudios Hidrográficos del CEDEX: has restricted the basic hydrographic network based on two conditions: (i) drainage basin equal to or greater than 10 km2; and (ii) an average annual contribution in natural regime greater than 3.15 hm3/year (100 L/s). - Reference stations: regardless of the flow and the drained basin area, the river sections where reference stations are used to determine the reference conditions of certain river types have been considered.
