In contrast to the consistent definitions of HI described above, the HI-other designation due to human harassment of live pinnipeds and cetaceans on the beach was applied inconsistently by stranding responders through the years because it is not clearly defined by the NMFS Marine Mammal Health and Stranding Response Program (MMHSRP), although such cases arguably fit the definition of harassment under the Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA; Title 16, U.S code [USC] 1361).
Level A stranding data from NC are also maintained in the MMHSRP database; however, the local database includes additional data such as detailed HI information.
