This guide outlines practices and technologies that should be used during or instead conventional maritime activities producing impulsive underwater noise. References are also included for those technologies which are very likely to become increasingly used (and market available) in the next future. Mitigation measures for pile driving are well described in this publication.
This is part of our Good Practice Guidance for Marine Mammals, produced by Claire Lacey, Jon Barnes and Patrick Lynes.
