The National Marine Fisheries Service has approved an application under the Marine Mammal Protection Act for the incidental harassment and harm to five species of marine mammals by the Carnival Cruise line during the expansion of the company’s Port of Long Beach cruise terminal in California. The effective dates of the incidental harassment authorization have been adjusted due to a delay in construction and are now applicable for the incidental take of short-beaked common dolphin, long-beaked common dolphin, bottlenose dolphin, California sea lions, and harbor seals between December 10, 2021, and December 9, 2022.
