Oiled Sea Otter Capture Course


Safety should always be the number one priority when capturing sea otters. Capture operations should never be conducted when weather or sea conditions present a danger to personnel. To prevent injuries, the following regulations should be implemented: U.S. Department of Transportation, U.S. Coast Guard, and state regulations for vessel operation; the U.S. Department of Transportation, Federal Aviation Administration, and state regulations for aircraft safety; the U.S. Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and state regulations for handling hazardous substances.
