From October 13 to 15, 2015, NAMMCO (The North Atlantic Marine Mammal Commission) is organizing a symposium on the effects of human disturbance – including noise and shipping activities – on the distribution, behaviour and conservation status of marine mammal populations in the Arctic, with a focus on belugas, narwhals and walruses.
This event will be held at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark. Researcher Véronique Lesage of the Ministry of Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) will be amongst the guest specialists and Robert Michaud, president of the Group for Research and Education on Marine Mammals (GREMM), will take part in the discussion tables.
