NMFS Publishes Revised Marine Mammal Stock Assessments
On May 4, 2006, the National Marine Fisheries Service published revised marine mammal stock assessment reports for 2005 (SARs). The Marine Mammal Protection Act requires the NMFS to publish SARs at least annually. The NMFS’ Federal Register notice of final revised SARs for 2005 contains an extensive response by the Agency to public comment on the proposed SARs.
