Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 190 / Monday, October 2, 2006 / Notices governing the taking and importing of marine mammals (50 CFR part 216). The applicant has requested a 5–year permit to conduct studies of basic hearing and echolocation in up to three bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) and one false killer whale (Pseudorca crassidens) in captivity at the Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology. Researchers would conduct hearing measurements using suction cup sensors to monitor electrical signals in the brain in response to sound and echolocation clicks. The research is accomplished using trained behaviors in which the animals voluntarily participate in the activities and can leave the testing area at any time. Concurrent with the publication of this notice in the Federal Register, NMFS is forwarding copies of this application to the Marine Mammal Commission and its Committee of Scientific Advisors.
