The eleventh annual working meeting of ACCOBAMS has taken place at the Novotel in Monaco. The Scientific Committee of the Agreement on the Conservation of Marine Mammals has the task of implementing the policy decisions stemming from the meeting of the national signatories of the accord in November, 2016.

Among the tasks for the coming year will be the mitigation of the impact of underwater noise generated by human activities. Work will also focus on carrying out a global inventory of marine mammals in the Mediterranean and the Black Sea, and identifying areas of particular importance for the conservation of whales, dolphins and porpoises.
