Consideration of a waiver of the moratorium and return of management of certain marine mammals to the State of Alaska: final environmental impact statement, Volume 1
The Group, 1978 - Nature
The Marine Mammal Protection Act (U.S.) of 1972 imposed a moratorium on the taking and importing of marine mammals amd marine mammal products. The state of Alaska requested a waiver of the moratorium. Before such a waiver can be granted an environmental impact analysis must be conducted. These publications are a record of that procedure.
