Collaborative Development of Recommendations for Euthanasia of Stranded Cetaceans
NOAA Technical Memorandum NMFS-OPR-56
Published Date: 2016
The safe and humane euthanasia of live stranded cetaceans is one of the most challenging of all marine mammal stranding events. The experiences of the Virginia Aquarium Stranding Response Program (VAQS) and those of our colleagues in the United States Marine Mammal Stranding Network, as well as the lack of information and guidance available, inspired this important two year collaborative John H. Prescott grant project.
