  • Description:
    "This EA, titled 'Issuance of an Incidental Harassment Authorization to America's Cup Event Authority and Port of San Francisco to Take Marine Mammals by Harassment Incidental to Construction and Race Event Activities for the 34th America's Cup and James R. Herman Cruise Terminal and Northeast Wharf Plaza in San Francisco Bay, California' (hereinafter, EA) addresses the impact on the human environment that would result from issuance of this IHA for authorization of incidental takes of marine mammals during project construction and race event activities, taking into account the mitigation measures required in the IHA.(...) To comply with the MMPA, the Event Authority and Port have submitted an IHA application due to the potential incidental harassment of four marine mammal species that may be present in San Francisco Bay; harbor seal (Phoca vitulina), California sea lion (Zalophus californianus), Harbor porpoise (Phocoena phocoena), and elephant seal (Mirounga angustirostris). On April 27, 2012, NMFS received an adequate and complete request for the authorization of incidental take, by Level B harassment only, of marine mammals associated with construction and race event activities along the San Francisco shoreline and on San Francisco Bay, California"--Page 1.
