Title: Designation of Critical Habitat for the North Atlantic Right Whale 
Abstract: National Marine Fisheries Service proposes to designate critical habitat for the North Atlantic right whale. This proposal would result in an expansion of critical habitat in the northeast feeding area (Gulf of Maine-Georges Bank region) and the southeast calving area (Florida to North Carolina) compared to what was designated in 1994 for right whales.
