This month the Whales Working Group continues to progress information sharing relating to cetacean bycatch in EU and UK waters as well as ongoing initiatives relating to whale, dolphin and porpoise conservation and welfare. Plans and strategy for responding to the outcomes of the recent the International Whaling Commission (IWC) held in October are ongoing. Monitoring of whaling by Iceland, Japan, Norway and the Faroe Islands continues.
The group is also advancing activities that members can engage in to help mitigate polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) pollution in marine mammals.
