Edition Notes

Ocean Noise and Marine Mammals reviews sources of noise in the ocean environment, what is known of the responses of marine mammals to acoustic disturbance, and what models exist for describing ocean noise and marine mammal responses. Recommendations are made for future data gathering efforts, studies of marine mammal behavior and physiology. 1. By-catch poses a serious threat to the conservation of marine mammal diversity 2. By-catch in artisanal gill net fisheries has proven to be particularly intractable 3. Mitigating by-catch of small populations is very difficult without eliminating fisheries 4. Most serious by-catch issues occur within the .   Fish and marine mammals are important resources in the open ocean and near-shore coastal areas; many federal laws and regulations guide their management as well as the management of their habitat.

Marine mammals and humans have co-existed on this planet for several hundred thousand years. Both rely heavily on the exploitation of marine resources, though whales, dolphins, and pinnipeds have been doing so for much longer, roaming the oceans for millions of years, long before the emergence of modern humans (Hoelzel ). It is not surprising that, when there is a “new kid on the block Cited by:   Volume 2 covers historical data on commercial and recreational fisheries, with an analysis of marketing trends and drivers; ecology, populations and risks to birds, sea turtles and marine mammals in the Gulf; and diseases and mortalities of fish and other animals that inhabit the Gulf of Edition: 1st Ed. Toxicology of Marine Mammals focuses on the effects of natural and introduced toxicants on organs and systems in marine mammals. It provides overviews on health status and contamination, with subsequent chapters devoted to whales, pinnipeds, dolphins, polar bears, manatees, and sea otters. The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), informally known as NOAA Fisheries, is the United States federal agency responsible for the stewardship of national marine resources. The agency conserves and manages fisheries to promote sustainability and prevent lost economic potential associated with overfishing, declining species, and degraded habitats.

Marine Mammals: Fisheries, Tourism and Management Issues brings together contributions from 68 leading scientists from 12 countries to provide a comprehensive, up-to-date review on the way we manage our interactions with whales, dolphins, seals and dugongs. The book examines how we have fared conserving the world’s marine mammal populations Marine Mammals and Fisheries book $ Marine mammal ecology.

Marine mammals represent a variety of ecological roles, including herbivores (manatees), filter feeders (baleen whales), and top predators (killer whales).Mammals evolved on land around million years ago. Each taxonomic marine mammal group evolved from a different group of land mammals, whose ancestors separately ventured back into the ocean environment.

The Commission is working with the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) and other partner agencies to better understand impacts of depredation on marine mammals and find possible solutions, such as through the development of non-lethal deterrents aimed at minimizing interactions between marine mammals and fishing gear.

As well as covering 'classical' fisheries science, the book focuses on contemporary issues such as industrial fishing, poverty and conflict in fishing communities, marine reserves, the effects of fishing on coral reefs and by-catches of mammals, seabirds and reptiles.

Abstract. Marine mammals are defined and their adaptations reviewed in this introductory chapter. Extant marine mammals include more than species with representatives in three mammalian orders: Carnivora: pinnipeds, marine otters, and polar bears; Cetacea: whales, dolphins, and porpoises; and Sirenia: manatees and dugongs.

They are a diverse group of mammals with unique physical adaptations that allow them to thrive in the marine environment with extreme temperatures, depths, pressure, and darkness.

Marine mammals are classified into four different taxonomic groups: cetaceans (whales, dolphins, and porpoises), pinnipeds (seals, sea lions, and walruses), sirenians. Marine mammals feed at different trophic levels, occur from freshwater to open-ocean ecosystems, and are found across most latitudes.

Despite this diversity, there are two basic ways in which all marine mammals and their ecosystems interact; one encompasses the effects of the ecosystem on marine mammals, the other, the effects of marine mammals on their ecosystems (Fig.
