Title: US Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico Marine Mammal Stock Assessments 2021
Short Name: 2021 US Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico Marine Mammal SAR
Status: Completed
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 2021 meeting of the Atlantic Scientific Review Group (ASRG), and subsequent revisions were based on their contributions and constructive criticism. This is a working document and individual stock assessment reports will be updated as new information becomes available and as changes to marine mammal stocks and fisheries occur. The authors solicit any new information or comments which would improve future stock assessment reports.

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

Notes:

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 2020 publication. The 2021 revisions consist primarily of updated abundance estimates and/or revised human-caused mortality and serious injury (M/SI) estimates. A total of 23 Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico stock assessment reports were written for 2021. This year, the NEFSC revised 12 stock assessment reports, 3 were "strategic" and 9 were "non-strategic". For 2021, the SEFSC revised 11 Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico stock assessment reports representing 33 stocks (one report, the Common Bottlenose Dolphin, Northern Gulf of Mexico Bay, Sound and Estuary Stocks covers 23 stocks). Of the 33 SEFSC stocks, 22 are strategic and 11 are non-strategic. No SEFSC stocks changed in status from "non-strategic" to "strategic". Three Northern Gulf of Mexico bay, sound and estuary stocks changed from "strategic" to "non-strategic" (Galveston Bay, East Bay, Trinity Bay; Mississippi River Delta; and Sabine Lake). One new SAR was written for the Galveston Bay, East Bay, Trinity Bay stock of common bottlenose dolphins. Previously, information for this stock was contained within the report "Common Bottlenose Dolphin, Northern Gulf of Mexico Bay, Sound, and Estuary Stocks".
