Letter of Concurrence on the Issuance of Permit No. 21026 for Auditory Evoked Potential Testing on Cetaceans
Published Date: 2017
The proposed action for this consultation is the issuance of a scientific research permit (Permit No. 21026) to Dr. Houser to authorize take of cetaceans in the form of auditory evoked potential testing on stranded cetaceans within the United States (U.S.), including on beaches, in waters, in temporary pools, or in rehabilitation facilities in order to obtain hearing range and sensitivity information. This is a renewal of his previous permit (Permit No. 16599), which authorized the same general research activities except of the use of needle electrodes.
