Dear MARMAM Editors,

Perhaps this article in /Oceanus/ magazine would interest your readers

      Buoys Help Avert Whale-Ship Collisions

      /Specially engineered mooring system detects whales and warns ships/

To turn a pie-in-the-sky dream of a real-time whale warning system into
an up-and-running reality, a long line of people with competing
interests and complementary expertise had to find ways to collaborate:
Texas-based energy corporation representatives and New England
conservationists, biologists and engineers, and officials from a
smorgasbord of governmental regulatory agencies.
