Marine Mammals

A broad term that encompasses pinnipeds (seals, sea lions), cetaceans (dolphins and whales), and sea otters.

Marine Mammals

Marine mammals include pinnipeds (seals, sea lions), cetaceans (dolphins and whales), and sea otters. Because these organisms are intelligent and can be curious about new objects within their environment, it is fairly difficult to gauge how offshore renewable energy devices will affect marine mammals. Some of these organisms use echolocation to communicate and navigate themselves through the marine environment, which poses a concern because all offshore renewable energy devices create an acoustic output and have the potential to mask or hide echolocation of marine mammals. Some marine mammals also have very sensitive hearing, which makes these organisms vulnerable to loud noises generated underwater (i.e. pile driving/construction). With these issues in mind, the stressors that pose the greatest risks to marine mammals are the dynamic and static physical presence of devices as well as acoustic outputs.
