The North Atlantic Seal Research Consortium (NASRC) believes that healthy populations of all marine resources including fishes, seals, whales, and other species are important components of healthy marine ecosystems. We are committed to providing answers to questions about seal populations by using comprehensive research data and analysis.
To improve our understanding of the ecological role of seals in the northeast U.S. This will be accomplished through coordinated research efforts, sharing of data, collaboration amongst all stakeholders, a concentrated effort to gain knowledge, and public outreach. The consortium will include scientists (NGOs, universities, state and federal government), fishing community (commercial and recreational), and anyone who shares an interest.
Working collaboratively to improve our understanding of the ecological role of seals in the Northwest Atlantic.
