Background information and definitions
Introducing permits or licences for marine and freshwater mammal watching tours may reduce disturbance. This may involve limiting the number of vessels and/or operations that can take place in an area. Conditions of permits/licences may require that tour operators follow specific regulations (e.g. see Introduce and enforce regulations for marine and freshwater mammal watching tours) and report their activities and observations.
