NOAA Fisheries has received a request from Hilcorp Alaska LLC for authorization to take marine mammals incidental to tugboats towing a drill rig in Cook Inlet, Alaska. We are requesting comments on our proposal to issue two successive incidental harassment authorizations (IHAs) to incidentally take marine mammals during the specified activities. We are also requesting comments on a possible one-time, one-year renewal that could be issued under certain circumstances.
