sma-northeast-jan1-may15

The National Oceanographic & Atmospheric Administration is reminding recreational boaters to slow down for right whales or risk facing penalties. Last year NOAA says that it fined 4 yachts for traveling at speeds greater than 10 knots in Right Whale Seasonal Management Areas. Penalties ranged from $9,000 to $11,500.
