Dear colleagues,

The International Whaling Commission's (IWC) Scientific Committee<https://iwc.int/sc68c> meeting is taking place virtually from April 27 - May 14, 2021.
The IWC's Bycatch Mitigation Initiative<https://iwc.int/bycatch> is encouraging the submission of papers focused on cetacean bycatch, or directly relevant to this topic.

We would be interested in research addressing bycatch in all types of fisheries, although particularly in small-scale fisheries and gillnet gears. This could include: bycatch assessments, monitoring approaches, technical mitigation and community or socio-economic approaches to bycatch management as well as other topics.

In particular, any papers relevant to Peru, Republic of Congo, Thailand, Pakistan, Kenya, Indonesia, Malaysia, and India would be particularly welcomed. These countries have been identified by the Bycatch Mitigation Initiative as priority countries to develop a series of collaborative bycatch 'pilot projects'.

If you have any relevant information on our priority countries, or would like to submit a paper please send a suggested title and a very brief abstract to marguerite.tarzia at iwc.int<mailto:marguerite.tarzia at iwc.int> by 1st February 2021 . We can then discuss with you whether a full paper submission or a brief summary would be most appropriate to share with the Scientific Committee meeting, and explain the registration and paper review process in detail.

Please do get in touch with any questions or suggestions.

Kind regards,
Marguerite Tarzia
Bycatch Coordinator
