Mariners needed for North Atlantic Right Whale survey

ADVERTISEMENT

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) is conducting a survey of its North Atlantic Right Whale Mandatory Ship Reporting (MSR) system and is seeking input from mariners operating vessels of 300 tons or greater and familiar with the U.S. East Coast.

The survey consists of nine questions and allows for comments. It is not about the ship speed restrictions or any other right whale conservation program, but rather about the reporting system only. Completing the survey is expected to take less than 10 minutes. The survey is voluntary and all responses are anonymous and confidential.
