NMFS Reiterates Requests for Data on Downeast LNG’s Ship Strike Mitigation Plan

The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) submitted a letter to FERC this week reiterating its request for information regarding Downeast LNG’s plan to mitigate the possible effects of its project on marine animals. Specifically, NMFS is seeking additional information on Downeast LNG’s ship strike avoidance plan. The agency notes that it has received no response from Downeast or FERC regarding its requests, and its required consultation under the Endangered Species Act cannot commence until it receives such information. Find the letter in FERC’s eLibrary under Docket No. CP07-52.
