Volume 12 - Marine Mammals in the North Atlantic - is now completed


The North Atlantic Marine Mammal Commission (NAMMCO) is proud to present Volume 12 of the NAMMCO Scientific Publications series. Marine Mammals in the North Atlantic is a collection of papers edited by Fern Wickson, Heleen Middel and Albert Fernández Chacón.

The North-East Atlantic and the waters of NAMMCO member countries host a diverse marine mammal community whose dynamics are influenced by multiple environmental and anthropogenic factors. In this context, knowledge from a variety of scientific disciplines is required to achieve effective marine mammal management and conservation. This multidisciplinary approach to marine mammal research and management is reflected in the several articles, reviews, notes, and reports included in this volume.

Volume 12 is dedicated to Gísli A. Víkingsson, our dear colleague and friend that we lost in July 2022, in acknowledgement for his contribution to the work of the NAMMCO Scientific Committee.
