Incidental Takes and Interactions of Marine Mammals and Birds in Districts 6, 7 and 8 of the Southeast Alaska Salmon Drift Gillnet Fishery, 2012 and 2013
Marine Mammal Observer Program observations of the Southeast Alaska salmon drift gillnet fishery.
NOAA Fisheries' Alaska Marine Mammal Observer Program (AMMOP) monitors marine mammal interactions with state-managed commercial fisheries. Information collected by the AMMOP is included in the annual Stock Assessment Reports published by NOAA Fisheries for all marine mammal stocks in U.S. waters. A "stock" is a group of marine mammals of the same species or subspecies in a common area that interbreed when mature.
