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.
