Impact of shipping noise on marine animals

Description

In 2010, the Ecosystem and Ocean Science Division of DFO mandated a study of the impact of shipping noise on marine animals in preparation for a Canadian Science Advisory Secretariat workshop aimed at developing DFO policies. Since this workshop was delayed, the information collected during the study on the impact of shipping noise is now out of date, and lacks new scientific knowledge, recent publications, and international initiatives. This project will update the previous study, and the results will be presented at a SPERA workshop planned for 2013-14.
