Southwest Fisheries Science Center. Conducting scientific research to ensure that the region's marine and anadromous fish, marine mammal, marine turtle and invertebrate populations remain at healthy and sustainable levels, as functioning parts of their ecosystems. The Southwest Fisheries Science Center website is moving to the NOAA Fisheries site on August 3, You can find us at with new and updated content.

As always, if you see a stranded marine mammal or sea turtle, keep people and pets back a safe distance of 50 yards ( feet). There is currently no evidence to support claims that whales, sea lions or other marine mammals are infected with COVID More information about pets and other animals is on this Centers for Disease Control website.

Violations of the Marine Mammal Protection Act can result in a civil penalty up to $11, as well as criminal penalties up to $, and imprisonment of up to a year or both.

Remember, these are wild animals and they may bite. It is important to keep both people and pets away from the stranded. Thanks for your interest in marine mammal stranding data. At this time, access to the Marine Mammal Health and Stranding Response Program’s National Stranding Database is only granted to participants active in the national stranding network.

If you are a member of the national stranding network and require access, please work with your regional stranding coordinator to make that request. The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), informally known as NOAA Fisheries, is the United States federal agency responsible for the stewardship of national marine resources.

The agency conserves and manages fisheries to promote sustainability and prevent lost economic potential associated with overfishing, declining species, and degraded habitats. During May of –, live captures were conducted by the National Marine Mammal Lab (Alaska Fisheries Science Center's Polar Ecosystems Program) and samples were obtained from ice floes and collected using a metal shovel to scoop the urine Stranded marine mammals recovered by the Southwest Fisheries Center ice which was placed in Whirl-Pak® bags and frozen at −80 °C until analyzed for algal toxins.

The Marine Mammal Stranding Center (established in ) is a private non-profit organization located in Brigantine, New Stranding Center's main goal is to rescue, rehabilitate, and release stranded marine mammals and sea are the only marine stranding center in New Jersey.

The National Marine Mammal Laboratory (NMML) conducts research on marine mammals important to the mission of the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) and the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), with particular attention to issues related to marine mammals off the coasts of Alaska, Washington, Oregon, and California.

In fact, some marine mammal species are known only from stranded specimens. Strandings also provide important information on human impacts to marine mammals. Data collected from stranded animals teach us about interactions between marine mammals and fisheries, vessels, or marine debris.

Samples collected from stranded marine mammals. The Dolphin & Whale app enables the public in the Southeast U.S. to immediately report live or dead stranded, injured, or entangled marine mammals by connecting them to the nearest stranding response hotline which is detected through the phone’s internal GPS system (the GPS pinpoints the user's location and, in turn, calls the appropriate.

NMFS' Office of Protected Resources has received a request from NMFS' Southwest Fisheries Science Center (SWFSC) for authorization to take marine mammals incidental to fisheries research conducted in multiple specified geographical regions, over the course of five years from the date of issuance. What Is A Stranded Marine Mammal.

Marine mammals are sentinels of the marine environment and their health reveals a great deal about the health of our oceans. CIMWI responds to stranded marine mammals and strives to uncover causes behind strandings in effort to contribute to making a difference in ocean and human health.
