WCS Canada Comments - Recommendations on Northern Low Impact Shipping Corridors - July 2019

WCS Canada


Abstract

WCS Canada staff provide recommendations on an initiative to establish Low Impact Shipping Corridors through Arctic waters. We recommend a northward shift of the current corridor, which would avoid beluga and bowhead concentration areas, and would establish a noise buffer between the corridors and existing Marine Protected Areas.
