NOAA – WhalesSouth Ship Reporting

Thursday, November 06, 2008

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) issued its WhalesSouth placard reminding owners, operators, and masters that the mandatory ship reporting system for the Georgia-Florida coast comes into effect on November 15 and remains in effect until April 16. Ships of 300 gross tons or more entering the designated area are required to report such entry in the manner provided for in the placard. This reporting requirement is based on the need to protect the endangered North Atlantic right whales, which winter in these waters.
