The assessments in this report include stocks studied by the Southwest Fisheries Science Center (SWFSC, La Jolla, California and Honolulu, Hawaii) and the National Marine Mammal Laboratory (NMML, Seattle, Washington). Staff of the National Marine Mammal Laboratory wrote seven reports, including two stocks of harbor seals in Oregon and Washington, northern fur seal (San Miguel Island stock), two stocks of harbor porpoise in Oregon and Washington, and two stocks of Eastern North Pacific killer whales (Southern Resident and Transient stocks). Southwest Fisheries Science Center personnel prepared stock assessments for the remaining 48 stocks. A summary table for these revised stock assessment reports is provided in Appendix 4.
