Establishment of Time-Area Closures for Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins Under the Marine Mammal Protection Act
Document Number: 2021-20620
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-09-28
Agency: Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
We, NMFS, propose a regulation under the Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA) to establish mandatory time-area closures of Hawaiian spinner dolphins' essential daytime habitats at five selected sites in the Main Hawaiian Islands (MHI). These regulatory measures are intended to reduce take of Hawaiian spinner dolphins from occurring in inshore marine areas at essential daytime habitats, and where high levels of disturbance from human activities are most prevalent. During designated times, unless subject to an exception as described in this rule, these regulatory measures would prohibit any person or vessel, on or below the surface, to enter, cause to enter, solicit to enter, or remain within any of the five time-area closures, for the purpose of preventing take of Hawaiian spinner dolphins in areas identified as important essential daytime habitats for spinner dolphins that have high levels of human disturbance. The proposed mandatory time-area closures would occur from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily in areas of Kealakekua Bay, H[omacr]naunau Bay, Kauhak[omacr] Bay (Ho`okena), and Makako Bay on Hawai`i Island, and La Perouse Bay on Maui.
Swim With and Approach Regulation for Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins Under the Marine Mammal Protection Act
Document Number: 2021-20616
Type: Rule
Date: 2021-09-28
Agency: Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
We, NMFS, establish a regulation under the Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA) to prohibit swimming with and approaching a Hawaiian spinner dolphin within 50 yards (45.7 meters (m)) (for persons, vessels, and objects), including approach by interception. These regulatory measures are intended to prevent take of Hawaiian spinner dolphins from occurring in marine areas where viewing pressures are most prevalent; the swim-with and approach prohibitions apply in waters within 2 nautical miles (nmi; 3.7 kilometers (km)) of the Hawaiian Islands and in designated waters bounded by the islands of L[amacr]na`i, Maui, and Kaho`olawe. Although unauthorized take of marine mammals, including harassment of spinner dolphins, already is and continues to be prohibited under the MMPA throughout their range, the purpose of this regulation is to identify and prohibit specific human activities that result in take (including harassment) of Hawaiian spinner dolphins, and thus reduce disturbance and disruption of important Hawaiian spinner dolphin behaviors in areas where human- dolphin interactions are most likely to occur. This regulation is expected to reduce take of Hawaiian spinner dolphins and the impact of human viewing and interaction on these animals in the main Hawaiian Islands (MHI).
