Summary: In this chapter we discuss area–time closures as a management approach to mitigate the impacts of commercial cetacean-watch tourism. We begin by evaluating the benefits and potential impacts of the cetacean-watch industry; discuss the variety of legislation currently available and then evaluate its effectiveness. We then discuss the development of area–time closures as part of management frameworks to help mitigate threats to cetacean populations. Finally, we identify the important issues for consideration when implementing area–time closures.
