  • Absolute probability estimates of lethal vessel strikes to North Atlantic right whales in Roseway Basin, Scotian Shelf 

    van der Hoop, Julie M.; Vanderlaan, Angelia S. M.; Taggart, Christopher T. (Ecological Society of America, 2012-10)
    Vessel strikes are the primary source of known mortality for the endangered North Atlantic right whale (Eubalaena glacialis). Multi-institutional efforts to reduce mortality associated with vessel strikes include vessel-routing ...
  • Assessment of management to mitigate anthropogenic effects on large whales 

    van der Hoop, Julie M.; Moore, Michael J.; Barco, Susan G.; Cole, Timothy V. N.; Daoust, Pierre-Yves; Henry, Allison G.; McAlpine, Donald F.; McLellan, William A.; Wimmer, Tonya; Solow, Andrew R. (John Wiley & Sons, 2012-10-01)
    United States and Canadian governments have responded to legal requirements to reduce human-induced whale mortality via vessel strikes and entanglement in fishing gear by implementing a suite of regulatory actions. We ...
  • Behavioral impacts of disentanglement of a right whale under sedation and the energetic cost of entanglement 

    van der Hoop, Julie M.; Moore, Michael J.; Fahlman, Andreas; Bocconcelli, Alessandro; George, Clay; Jackson, Katharine; Miller, Carolyn A.; Morin, David; Pitchford, Thomas; Rowles, Teresa K.; Smith, Jamison; Zoodsma, Barb (2013-03)
    Protracted entanglement in fishing gear often leads to emaciation through reduced mobility and foraging ability, and energy budget depletion from the added drag of towing gear for months or years. We examined changes in ...
  • Bottlenose dolphins modify behavior to reduce metabolic effect of tag attachment 

    van der Hoop, Julie M.; Fahlman, Andreas; Hurst, Thomas P.; Rocho-Levine, Julie; Shorter, K. Alex; Petrov, Victor; Moore, Michael J. (2014-10)
    Attaching bio-telemetry or -logging devices (‘tags’) to marine animals for research and monitoring adds drag to streamlined bodies, thus affecting posture, swimming gaits and energy balance. These costs have never been ...
  • Criteria and case definitions for serious injury and death of pinnipeds and cetaceans caused by anthropogenic trauma 

    Moore, Michael J.; van der Hoop, Julie M.; Barco, Susan G.; Costidis, Alexander M.; Gulland, Frances M.; Jepson, Paul D.; Moore, Kathleen M. T.; Raverty, Stephen A.; McLellan, William A. (Inter-Research, 2013-04-11)
    Post-mortem examination of dead and live stranded beach-cast pinnipeds and cetaceans for determination of a cause of death provides valuable information for the management, mitigation and prosecution of unintentional and ...
