Right Whales & Ship Management Options

Right Whales & Ship Management Options

This Discussion Draft is a revision of the 5 June 2000 Discussion Draft. The 5 June Discussion Draft was widely distributed to the shipping industry, port authorities, pilot's associations, industry associations, scientists, conservation groups, and Federal and state agencies. It was also posted on two web sites. The Ship Strike Committee and the National Marine Fisheries Service have used the 5 June 2000 Discussion Draft as a basis to frame the problem of right whales and ships and to solicit input on management options. This revision is based on our discussions and comments received. These discussions included four regional four-hour briefings, nine shipping meetings and two regional Ship Strike Committee meetings
