PROPOSED REGULATIONS

NATIONAL MARINE FISHERIES SERVICE (NMFS) AND NATIONAL OCEANIC AND ATMOSPHERIC ADMINISTRATION (NOAA)

Amendments to the National Marine Sanctuary regulations regarding low overflights in designated zones: Proposed rule, published Dec. 8, 2010, comments by Jan. 7,
2011
[TEXT]
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration proposes to amend the regulations of the Channel Islands, Monterey Bay, Gulf of the Farallones and the Olympic Coast national marine sanctuaries relating to sanctuary overflights. Specifically, the agency proposes to amend the regulations requiring that motorized aircraft maintain certain minimum altitudes above specified locations within the boundaries of the listed sanctuaries and states that failure to comply with these altitude limits is presumed to disturb marine mammals or seabirds and is a violation of the sanctuary regulations.
