We emphasize this is a pilot project to present examples of ICAs.

We focus only on three species of mysticetes (gray, humpback and fin) and a subgroup of one odontocete (Resident killer whales).

The ICAs were were identified using readily available information only.

There may well be other locations besides those presented here that meet Important Cetacean Areas Criteria within this BC-SEA region.
