Action plan for blue, fin, sei and North Pacific right whales (Balaenoptera musculus, B. physalus, B. borealis, and Eubalaena japonica) in Canadian Pacific waters: CW69-21/22-2016E-PDF

"This action plan addresses the entire set of populations of Blue, Fin, Sei and North Pacific Right Whales (Balaenoptera musculus, B. physalus, B. borealis, and Eubalaena japonica) in Canadian Pacific waters. It identifies recovery measures to implement the broad goals and objectives outlined in the Recovery Strategy for Blue, Fin and Sei Whales in Pacific Canadian Waters (Gregr et al. 2006), and the Recovery Strategy for North Pacific Right Whales (DFO 2011). All four species are being considered together because of their similar geographic distribution, common threats to survival, and the efficiency of integrating activities and resources required for recovery. It is considered an action plan because current best available information is insufficient to identify critical habitat (DFO 2012). When sufficient information allows, critical habitat will be identified for one or more of the species in a later iteration of the action plan or an amended recovery strategy"--Executive summary, p. iii.
