2021 meeting of the Scientific Committee of the International Whaling Commission

The 2021 meeting of the Scientific Committee of the International Whaling Commission took place online from 27 April to 14 May 2021. A large number of issues were discussed, among them the situation for the Baltic Proper harbour porpoise population, where a paper was presented by CCB. The issue of the military in some countries stopping large-scale use of pingers in the Baltic was met with worry, and recommendations are made in the report from the meeting (https://iwc.int/available-now-iwc-scientific-committee-meeting).

Ida Carlén, CCB Biodiversity and Nature Conservation Officer took part in this event.
