A species can have a wide distributional range and be impacted very differently by humans through this range. Hence its conservation status may vary between the areas. Management is therefore done not at the species level, but at the area level, which is relevant for that particular species. The documents below provide for each species a list of the management areas currently in use within the organisation. These lists should be considered as living documents, as the definition of the areas might change as knowledge increases.

Management areas for common minke whales recognized by NAMMCO and the IWC.
