The 9th marine mammal necropsy workshop is organized by the Department of Veterinary Pathology (University of Liege, Belgium), the Laboratory of Applied Bioacoustics LAB (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Spain) and the UMS Pelagis, Centre de Recherche sur les Mammifères Marins (University of La Rochelle, France). 

The session will be held at the Veterinary College on the Sart Tilman campus (Liège, Belgium) on July 15, 16 and 17, 2015. 

The two first days, 20 marine mammals will be extensively necropsied and sampled, based on a standard procedure. The third day will be dedicated to update the European marine mammal necropsy procedure based on the proceeding of the first European Cetacean Society workshop on cetacean pathology: dissection techniques and tissue sampling. ECS Newsletter #17 special issue: 1991, 39 p. by Kuiken T. and Garcia Hartmann M. and adapted in previous European Cetacean Society necropsy workshops. 

A special attention will be the extraction and fixation (injection) of the inner ear. A morning session will be devoted to dissection, sampling and tissues banking procedures (Jauniaux T.), another one will be reserved for acoustics and inner ear extraction and fixation (André M.); afternoons will be dedicated to necropsies, mostly harbor porpoises. The number of attendees is limited to 20, in order to pair off participants under the supervision of a veterinary pathologist and specialists of the inner ear dissection.
