Description

Effective 140400 UTC Jun 2021, in order to promote navigation safety and protection of the marine environment due to an increased presence of North Atlantic right whales, a speed restriction area has been established and applies to all vessels above 13m in length overall:

Northern Static Zone: Vessels are instructed to proceed at a speed not exceeding 10.0kts over the ground.

Southern Static Zone: Vessels are instructed to proceed at a speed not exceeding 10.0kts over the ground.

Dynamic Shipping Zone A: There are no speed restrictions in effect.

Dynamic Shipping Zone B: There are no speed restrictions in effect.

Dynamic Shipping Zone C: There are no speed restrictions in effect.

Dynamic Shipping Zone D: There are no speed restrictions in effect.

Dynamic Shipping Zone E: There are no speed restrictions in effect.

Seasonal Management Area 1: Vessels are instructed to proceed at a speed not exceeding 10.0kts over the ground.

Seasonal Management Area 2: Vessels are instructed to proceed at a speed not exceeding 10.0kts over the ground.

Restricted Area: The restricted area boundaries and associated speed restriction are inactive.

Trial Voluntary Slowdown Zone: Vessels are asked to voluntarily slow down at a speed not exceeding 10.0kts over the ground.

Details, including all geographical coordinates, are available in Notice to Mariners 405/21 and are available upon request from a Marine Communications and Traffic Services Centre. Failure to comply with this speed restriction could lead to enforcement action by Transport Canada.

Mariners are requested to report all whale sightings and observations of entangled, dead, or injured whales to the nearest Marine Communication and Traffic Services Centre.
