New e-book assessing approaches to support marine mammals’ bycatch management

Share:

A new e-book assessing approaches to support marine mammals’ bycatch management was published by members of the Marine Mammal Bycatch Working Group of the Lenfest Ocean Program.

Members of the Ocean Modeling Forum’s Marine Mammal Bycatch Working Group edited an e-book titled “Assessment Approaches to Support Bycatch Management for Marine Mammals” that was recently published in the journal Frontiers.

In an effort to help stakeholders make informed decisions around marine mammal bycatch management, the resource was made open-access and includes a dozen scientific papers published on the topic.

The papers provide guidance and products for nations working to comply with the Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA) Import Provisions to assess and manage bycatch worldwide.

More bycatch resources and guidance can be found in the marine mammal bycatch factsheet of the Marine Mammal Management Toolkit.
