Title: US Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico Marine Mammal Stock Assessments 2016
Short Name: 2016 US Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico Marine Mammal SAR
Status: Completed
Publication Date: 2017-06-01
Abstract:

This report was prepared by staff of the Northeast Fisheries Science Center (NEFSC) and Southeast Fisheries Science Center (SEFSC). NMFS staff presented the reports at the February 2016 meeting of the Atlantic Scientific

Review Group (ASRG) , and subsequent revisions were based on their contributions and constructive criticism

For Each Stock Assessed The Following is provided

STOCK DEFINITION AND GEOGRAPHIC RANGE

Estimates Of Population Size

ANNUAL HUMAN-CAUSED MORTALITY AND SERIOUS INJURY

List Of References Cited

This document cannot be previewed automatically from the NOAA Institutional Repository as it exceeds 5 MB

Table 1 contains a summary, by species, of the information included in the stock assessments, and also indicates those that have been revised since the 2015 publication. Most of the changes incorporate new information into sections on population size and/or mortality estimates. A total of 18 of the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico stock assessment reports were revised for 2016. The revised SARs include 6 strategic and 12 non-strategic stocks

Stocks not updated in 2016 are listed in Appendix VI.

AB - "Under the 1994 amendments of the Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA), the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) and the United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) were required to generate stock assessment reports (SARs) for all marine mammal stocks in waters within the U.S. Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ). The first reports for the Atlantic (includes the Gulf of Mexico) were published in July 1995 (Blaylock et al. 1995). The MMPA requires NMFS and USFWS to review these reports annually for strategic stocks of marine mammals and at least every 3 years for stocks determined to be non-strategic. Included in this report as appendices are: 1) a summary of serious injury/mortality estimates of marine mammals in observed U.S. fisheries (Appendix I), 2) a summary of NMFS records of large whale human-caused serious injury and mortality (Appendix II), 3) detailed fisheries information (Appendix III), 4) summary tables of abundance estimates generated over recent years and the surveys from which they are derived (Appendix IV), a summary of observed fisheries bycatch (Appendix V), and a list of reports not updated in the current year (Appendix VI)"--Executive Summary.
