NOAA recently released an incidental take authorization associated with the Navy’s proposed expansion of the Northwest Range Training Complex. The authorization and associated Navy documents are Complex, indeed! Unfortunately, NOAA has allocated too little time for public comment on the . Below I’ve quoted an inspirational letter from Fred Felleman. Please emulate him and join [...]
Received this from email@example.com this morning. Deadline for public comment is 5pm on Oct. 27, 2009. It’s noteworthy that this announcement came the day after notice that Dawn Noren published a paper that suggests that most surface active behaviors occur when vessels are within ~150 meters. As part of the recovery program for endangered Southern [...]
Interesting that only the NW region has a politically-appointed administrator; the other 5 regions have career admins… It took 9 months for Bush Administration to post Lohn to the job. Will Obama/Lubchenko act faster for the sake of our salmon and killer whales? clipped from www.cbbulletin.com Lohn Out As NOAA Fisheries Regional Director, Deputy Now [...]
Alan Wolf, NOAA; Larry Palke, Fisheries and Oceans, Canada; Stefan Beckman, Fisheries and Oceans, Canada; Russ Mullins, WDFW There is not currently any permitting process, but one is under consideration in Canada… Russ: on our 30+ patrols per summer, most infractions are by private recreational boaters.

Just got an exciting email from Dr. Marla Holt, bioacoustician on the NOAA cruise that aims to understand how the southern residents utilize the outer coast of Washington. They departed last Monday and are scheduled to return April 9th, making for a significantly longer cruise than in past years. Since big ocean-going research boats like [...]
This article is the first I’ve seen that juxtaposes salmon consumption rates of recreational fishers with a non-human predator, in this case, the CA sea lions. It will be an interesting exercise to see what factors reduce the runs on the various rivers of the West Coast where SRKWs forage annually. At 100kg of salmon [...]
Intro by Miles (Chip) Boothe Over 600 vessels have been escorted by the Neah Bay tug since it first started operating in 1999; 6 involved throwing lines to a vessel in distress. This afternoon the legislature is looking at a new measure to fund the tug permanently (beyond the 1 year that Governor Gregoire recently [...]
James Maroncelli Phase 1 of toxic loadings to PS initiated in 2006 by a coalition (PSAT+WA Ecology+…): realized that air deposition was an important pathway Phase 2: spring 07 $300k from EPA, $300 from Ecology TPA, $55k NOAA funded all programs (because we established a framework for project prioritzation) Surface runoff Atmospheric depositino Permitted wastewater [...]
Implementation of the recovery plan for SRKWs Section 7 consultations: Looking at Federal actions (funding, permiting, regulating) that might affect hydropower (hatchery production), water treatment plants, sewer outfalls, in-water construction, upland projects, habitat restoration, research, tidal and wave energy, etc. Recovery plan implementation: started in 2003 really with funding before plan was final (research, enforcement [...]
Wonderful news that one of the pioneers of sustainability science will head NOAA in the Obama administration! This could really turn around the pitiful funding of the recovery plans for Northwest salmon and killer whales. Jane is an exceptional marine ecologist has long been working out practical solutions to saving our marine food supplies (and [...]
