WCS Canada Comments - Underwater Noise Management Plans Discussion Paper - March 2019


Abstract

WCS Canada provides comments in response to Transport Canada's 2019 discussion paper, Reducing Underwater Vessel Noise through Underwater Noise Management Plans (UNMPs). We recommend that: i) UNMPs must be developed specifically for Arctic circumstances, ii) management at a fleet-level does not replace regional management or maximum noise limits, and iii) UNMPs need to be subject to regular review and continual refinement as our understanding of noise impacts continues to evolve.

Perpetuating current approaches and proceeding with an “extraction first” mentality is going to have massive climate consequences.
