Views and collaborators sought for Indian Ocean Monitoring Initiative

 

 

A new, long term and ocean-wide survey is proposed for the Indian Ocean and the IWC is circulating a questionnaire, seeking expert views and collaborators in the region.

Over 50 cetacean species have been recorded in the Indian Ocean and an Indian Ocean sanctuary was established by the IWC in 1979. The region is impacted significantly by human activities. Cetaceans face a number of threats including incidental bycatch in fishing gear, collisions with ships, pollution and climate change.
