CRE Brazil Comments on Ireland’s Draft Guidance to Manage the Risk to Marine Mammals from Man-made Sound Sources in Irish Water

The National Parks and Wildlife Service of Ireland’s Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht has solicited public comment on its Draft Guidance to Manage the Risk to Marine Mammals from Man-made Sound Sources in Irish Water, available online at http://www.npws.ie/media/npwsie/content/files/Guidance_Consultation%20Draft.pdf.

CRE Brazil submitted comments on the Irish Draft Guidance in large part because we are interested in the use of passive acoustic monitoring (“PAM”) and PAMGUARD, which is an opens source version of PAM that has been developed by a coalition of industry, academics and environmental groups. The PAMGUARD website is available online at http://www.pamguard.org/home.shtml.  PAM is being recommended for use during oil and gas seismic offshore Brazil. See document available online at http://www.aprh.pt/rgci/pdf/rgci-251_Parente.pdf.
