The Mariner’s Guide to Whales, Dolphins and Porpoises of Western Canada is a resource developed by the Coastal Ocean Research Institute, Prince Rupert Port Authority and Port of Vancouver. This guide is targeted at large vessel mariners and aims to inform them about the cetacean species along the B.C. coast, threats to these animals that may be associated with large vessels and shipping, and how mariners can minimize these threats.
This Guide was inspired and guided by Réseau d’observation de mammifères marins (ROMM). 2014. A Mariner’s Guide to Whales in the Northwest Atlantic. Rivière-du-Loup, Quebec. Shipping Federation of Canada and Dalhousie University. 74 p.
