Marine Species Monitoring

Currents Magazine feature article

Posted on April 8, 2014

The Navy continues to be a world leader in marine mammal research. Much of this research has focused on underwater detection and tracking of marine mammals; marine mammal behavioral responses to sound; establishing hearing thresholds; determining species location and abundance; and mitigating the effects of underwater sound. One important component of this work directly supports regulatory requirements under the Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA) and Endangered Species Act (ESA) through the Integrated Comprehensive Monitoring Program (ICMP). The Pacific Fleet was recently featured in Currents Magazine for it's contributions to the Navy's marine species monitoring efforts. Click on the image below to read the full article.
