Large Whale Restraint

Collaborators:
Provincetown Center for Coastal Studies, New England Aquarium, Michael Walsh, U FLorida, Gainesvill Veterinary School

We have been investigating chemical and physical tools to faciliate and enhance the safety of large whale restraint during efforts to remove entangling fishing gear. Two workshops have resulted. Reports from the first and second workshops may be downloaded. http://www.whoi.edu/science/B/people/mmoore/Feb29_2000_MedicalIntervention.pdf http://www.whoi.edu/science/B/people/mmoore/Dec14_2001_DisentanglementWorkshopReport.pdf
