Federal court will not stop U.S. seismic testing in whale habitat off B.C. coast

Justice Michael Kelen said he is not satisfied that the surveys would harm marine life based on new federal requirements imposed since the legal action was launched. The requirements include a reduction in the 180-decible level of the survey's airguns to 160 decibels, an increase in marine mammal observers, and a stipulation that no testing occur within about seven kilometres of a whale.
