17th January 2019: Report of the Scientific Committee
The report of the 25th meeting of the NAMMCO Scientific Committee is now available on the NAMMCO website.
Between the 13th and 16th of November, NAMMCO’s Scientific Committee met aboard the MS Polarlys sailing between Bergen and Tromsø.
Under the chairmanship of Tore Haug, the meeting included members of the four NAMMCO countries, as well as observers from Canada, Japan and Russia. Among the items discussed were reports from recent working groups, results from marine mammal population assessments, and updates on project developments for the future. Maintaining NAMMCO’s commitment to a sustainable future demands that its scientific advice is drawn from experts in the fields of marine mammal biology, ecosystem management, and population modelling. All members of the SC contributed greatly to the every-growing body of knowledge used in marine resource management and conservation in the North Atlantic.
