Conoco Requests IHA for Alaskan Seismic Operations
The National Marine Fisheries Service announced in the Federal Register that Conoco Phillips Alaska, Inc., has applied to NMFS for an Incidental Harassment Authorization for marine mammals and open-water seismic operations in the Chukchi Sea during the summer of 2006. The NMFS requests public comment on its proposed IHA allowing Conoco to take, by harassment, small numbers of several species of marine mammals during the seismic survey. Public comments to NMFS are due no later than June 12, 2006.
