Abstract
  • The objective of this workshop was to identify studies that should be conducted to properly determine potential effects from power generating buoys on marine mammals of the Oregon coast, with emphasis on cetaceans and focal discussion on gray whales. Special emphasis was put on the acoustic output from both the installation and operation of wave energy buoys (the two phases could be quite different acoustically), monitoring marine mammal behavior with special emphasis on gray whale behavior, detection of buoys by whales, and the use of acoustic deterrence devices to prevent whale collisions and/or entanglements. It was intended that conclusions from the workshop would provide guidance for future studies to support the responsible development of commercial wave energy projects. Workshop participants included marine mammal biologists, marine acousticians, and representatives from the wave energy industry and regulatory agencies.
