We are currently working for Archipelagos Institute of Marine and 
Environmental Research of the Aegean Sea and are producing a leaflet for 
local fishermen regarding what they should do if a marine mammal becomes 
entangled in their nets or lines. In particular we will be looking at the 
Mediterranean Monk Seal, Monachus monachus and small cetaceans. We have 
found a range of literature regarding larger cetaceans but are unable to 
find anything relevant for smaller cetaceans. We gather that specialist 
training may be needed and would  appreciate any advice and suggestions.
