U.S. Navy Agree's To Limit Sonar Use During Peace Time

-

In an agreement reached between the United States Navy and environmentalists, the military entity has agreed to cut its use of its controversial low frequency sonar which has been greatly speculated to cause severe harm to marine mammals, especially whales and dolphins.

The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) says the decision is the result of a deal struck after the group sued the navy over the issue.

Although the agreement with the navy is not yet finalized, since it must first be approved by a federal magistrate, environmentalists are hailing it as a "groundbreaking" accord.
