Good Morning,

Marine Mammal  Technical Support Services

Ocean Associates, Inc. (OAI) is seeking a candidate to support the NOAA National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) Office of International Affairs and Seafood Inspection (IASI) in Silver Spring, MD. OAI conducts research, offers policy advice, and provides personnel support services to government and industry clients for marine fisheries and protected species.  


The NMFS/IASI implements the international provisions of the Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA). Under the MMPA, NMFS/IASI will review the regulatory programs implemented by foreign nations exporting fish to the United States to evaluate how those programs address injury and mortality of marine mammals in commercial fishing, including bycatch and intentional killing. This review will assist in the development of tools to support the calculation of marine mammal abundance or bycatch limits.

As a contractor working up to 800 hours to 08/19/2021, he/she will:

* Review the nations’ submissions of scientific articles that support their marine mammal population abundance estimates or bycatch estimates
* Undertake a review of the scientific literature to further develop tools to assist nations in the calculation of their population abundance estimates or bycatch limits.
* Meet with the NMFS/IASI staff to review the available scientific information and existing source file spreadsheet of marine mammal population abundance estimates and bycatch limits and complete the table for species and stocks for which data is lacking.
Location: Subcontractor facility or approved place of business. Meetings will be convened by teleconference or google video meeting and materials/deliverables will be transmitted electronically.

Start Date: As soon as possible. 800 hours through Aug 19, 2021.
