The following information is missing from the Acknowledgments section: We thank Patrick O’Hara and his colleagues in the Oil-in-Canadian-Waters research group (Rosaline Canessa, Ron Pelot and Norma Serra) for extensive analysis of vessel count, speed and location data to facilitate our acoustic analyses.

There are several errors in the References section. References 3, 4, 28, 29, 30, 36, 37, 38, 39, and 55 are incorrect. The correct references are as follows:
