The Shipping Federation of Canada and le Réseau d’observation de mammifères marins (ROMM) are proud to announce the launch of a new environmental tool entitled A Mariners Guide to Whales in the Northwest Atlantic.

The guide provides mariners with information on the various types of whales they may encounter while sailing in the Northwest Atlantic, and identifies areas in which they should be particularly vigilant.  In addition to sensitizing maritiners mariners to the risk of collisions between ships and whales, the guide also provides descriptions of the 13 species of whales found in the Northwest Atlantic, as well as maps showing their distribution throughout the area.

A hard copy of the guide (in English only) can be obtained by contacting either organization.
