Workshop on Struck and Lost 2006

The Workshop addressing problems of struck and lost in seal, walrus and whale hunting was held 14 - 16 November 2006 in Copenhagen, Denmark.  

The overall goal of the Workshop was to improve catch relative to effort, to reduce animal suffering and improve public image, and to formulate recommendations on methods, techniques and equipment to reduce struck and loss that are applicable at the local level. 

Dr Egil Ole Øen from the Norwegian School of Veterinary Science, Section of Arctic Veterinary Medicine, Norway chaired the Workshop, and Mr Glenn Williams, Wildlife Advisor to the Wildlife Department of the Nunavut Tunngavik Incorporated (NTI), Canada served as co-chair.
