Title: Caribbean Marine Mammal Assessment Vessel Surveys
Status: Completed

These data sets are a compilation of large vessel surveys for marine mammal stock assessments in Caribbean waters conducted during 2000-2001. These surveys were designed as line-transect surveys with data collection through both visual methods and passive acoustic tools. Visual survey data were collected following standard protocols and are intended for analysis using the line-transect "Distance" method to provide estimates of abundance for marine mammal stocks within the survey area. Each survey includes a collection of data sets including visual survey data (survey effort and sightings of marine mammals and other species), passive and active acoustics data, sample collection information, and physical oceanographic data.


To assess the abundance and spatial distribution of cetaceans in the surveyed area.
