Meetings To Address Problem of Ships Hitting Whales

Tuesday, August 29, 2000
NOAA's National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) has scheduled four public meetings in September and October to discuss the problem of ships hitting endangered North Atlantic right whales. The meetings have a dual purpose: (1) to provide information on right whales and ship strikes, and (2) to gather suggestions and ideas on how ship strikes can be prevented. The meetings are scheduled for September 13 in Port Newark, New Jersey; September 14 in Silver Spring, Maryland; September 28 in Savannah, Georgia; and October 5 in Gloucester, Massachusetts. Anyone with questions about the meetings may contact Bruce Russell at (301) 656-1751 or [email protected] Additional information about NOAA Fisheries can be found at http://www.nmfs.noaa.gov/ Additional information about the right whales and ship strikes can be found at http://www.nero.nmfs.gov/whaletrp/
