Erratum in CCAC guidelines on marine mammals

CCAC guidelines on: the care and use of marine mammals

An error was found in the Salinity subsection 4.2.3 in Section 4 on Facility Management, Operation and Maintenance of the CCAC guidelines on: the care and use of marine mammals.

In this subsection on salinity, the parts per thousand reported should have read ≥22 instead of 2.2. The English and French PDF versions of these guidelines have been revised on January 7, 2015, to include the correct value.
