New report analyzes ways to reduce ships-whales collisions

According to a recent research, ship strikes are one of the main human-induced threats to whale survival. A variety of measures have been used or proposed to reduce collisions, and this paper proposes an approach to evaluate mitigation measures based on a risk assessment framework that has been adopted by the IMO, namely the Formal Safety Assessment (FSA).

Canada imposes seasonal speed restrictions in St. Lawrence to protect whales

Due to the changing migratory habits of the North Atlantic right whale and their increased presence in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, Canada has put in place seasonal speed restrictions in a specified zone, from 28 April to 15 November 2018. These restrictions are a combination of static zone and dynamic speed reduction sectors.

New Voluntary Speed Restriction In Effect

NOAA has announced that a voluntary speed restriction zone (Dynamic Management Area- DMA) has been established south of Nantucket to protect an aggregation of 7 right whales sighted in this area on 7 April 2014. This DMA is in effect immediately through 22 April 2014. Mariners are requested to route around these areas or transit through them at 10 knots or less.
