About the SAT

The SAT is comprised of questions related to the 23 factsheet topics (which can be found here). The answers to these questions have all been assigned a numerical value, the total of which shows the extent to which marine mammals have been accounted for in the management plan, and areas in which this can be improved upon.

The factsheets have been designed to be resources for general knowledge, examples of best practices and available trainings.
