Passive Acoustic Monitoring of Cetacean Activity Patterns and Movements in Minas Passage: Pre-Turbine Baseline Conditions (2011-2012)

Publication Date: July 31, 2013
This project aimed to conduct pre- and post-TISEC device deployment assessments of marine mammal activity and to assess the potential risk for interaction with turbine infrastructure. The aim was to collect a baseline data set for the most abundant marine mammals (primarily harbour porpoise) in Minas Passage using passive acoustic monitoring technology, moored at selected sites from spring to fall during both 2011 and 2012. Temporal and spatial patterns of activity in the Minas Passage will be described and integrated with information on activity levels and behaviour change following turbine deployments.
