Abstract
Public comments responding to the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (October 2005) for the proposed Undersea Warfare Training Range (USWTR) off North Carolina were analyzed to provide a comprehensive view of stakeholder concerns. Three main areas of public concern--short and long term effects on fish from midfrequency sonar operations, displacement of fishermen during training exercises, and habitat modification/destruction--were identified. Research areas that might address these concerns were also identified and examined. Finally, an abridged table of specific public comments is included.
