The North Atlantic Marine Mammal Commission


Upcoming events:



The Committee on Hunting Methods held its first workshop in 1999. Since then NAMMCO has held several international workshops on various aspects and issues pertaining to the hunting of marine mammals. These workshops serve as an important arena for hunters, managers and scientists where they can openly discuss issues of common interest in a constructive manner. With the aim of ensuring “usability” in the real world the workshops have always resulted in recommendations on both a general and more specific level.

The workshops are open for all interested parties to attend.
