NOAA used a detailed strategy to manage fisheries closures and followed a testing protocol developed with FDA to determine fisheries reopenings. When determinations were made that it was safe to reopen an area to fishing, NOAA prepared maps illustrating the reopening. More information on fisheries closures and the reopening process is available at the Deepwater Horizon/BP Oil Spill: Federal Fisheries Closure and Other Information website.
