Gulf of Mexico Marine Mammal Research
October 31-November 2, 2018
Core Area 3
Through this cross-consortia workshop with LADC-GEMM and CARMMHA, the goals for this workshop were to 1) summarize and develop a plan to synthesize what we have learned about Gulf of Mexico marine mammals with a focus on how this knowledge can be applied for future species management and spill responses, 2) examine remaining data and information gaps, and 3) provide recommendations on future directions and priorities within marine mammal and habitat research. To address these goals, a GoMRI Marine Mammal Research Synthesis Group was established.
