NMFS Extends Comment Period on Atlantic Seismic IHA

On March 17, 2014, The U.S. National Marine Fisheries Service published notice of a proposed issuance of an Incidental Harassment Authorization to the Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory in collaboration with the National Science Foundation, to take marine mammals, by harassment incidental to conducting a marine geophysical (seismic) survey in the northwest Atlantic Ocean May through August, 2014. NMFS has extended the public comment period on this Atlantic seismic IHA from April 16, 2014, to May 16, 2014. This extension responds to a request by Clean Ocean Action for more time to comment.
