NMFS Responds to NGO Request for Seismic Ocean Zoning in the Atlantic
NRDC and other NGOs filed comments asking that NMFS preclude seismic surveys in the Georges Bank, several submarine canyons, and some other areas of the Atlantic Ocean, including all habitat of the Atlantic right whale. The NGOs argued that the biological richness of these Atlantic Ocean areas would be harmed by seismic, and that right whales would be jeopardized. NMFS’ complex and generally negative response to these requests for Atlantic ocean zoning are available here at pages 52131-33.
