  • Regulating seismic acquisition for marine mammal protection: Competing interests or mutual goal?

    P. A. Fischer

    More than a dozen treaties, conventions and agreements, both national and international, as well as several nongovernmental organizations, shape marine mammal regulation with regard to oil and gas operations. Regulations are now being formed and implemented at a rapid pace. Leaseholders and operators need to stay informed, since they are the ones ultimately affected. This is an update on last year’s report with regard to ongoing and proposed marine mammal protection regulation for seismic operations in the Gulf of Mexico, the North Sea, offshore Canada and Australia.
