Dear Marmam Listers,

I work on bycatch based at the New England Aquarium, and would like to learn what bycatch mitigation work is being undertaken with large whale entanglements outside the Northwest Atlantic. I would appreciate receiving info, contacts, links, etc. to follow-up.

For more information on the project I work on, please see: http://www.neaq.org/conservation_and_research/projects/fisheries_bycatch_aquaculture/bycatch/consortium_for_wildlife_bycatch_reduction/index.php).
