Title: Predictive Models of Cetacean Densities in the California Current Ecosystem, 2016
Status: Completed
Publication Date: 2016-02-16
Abstract:

We developed predictive habitat-based models of cetacean density based on seven shipboard cetacean surveys conducted during summer and fall between 1991 and 2009 in the California Current Ecosystem. Models were built for 14 taxonomically diverse species/species groups including striped dolphin, short-beaked common dolphin, long-beaked common dolphin, Pacific white-sided dolphin, northern right whale dolphin, Risso's dolphin, common bottlenose dolphin, Dall's porpoise, sperm whale, fin whale, humpback whale, blue whale, Baird's beaked whale and a small beaked whale guild (Mesoplondon spp. and Cuvier's beaked whale).

Purpose:

These models have been used by the Navy and others to assess potential impacts on cetaceans in compliance with U.S. regulations such as the Endangered Species Act and Marine Mammal Protection Act, which require species-specific assessments of the number of animals potentially affected by their activities.
