Because marine mammals (MM), such as whales and dolphins, often inhabit waters where commercial fishing occurs, they can become entangled in fishing gear, which may injure or kill them -- this is referred to as "incidental take." The MM Protection Act (MMPA) requires the Nat. Marine Fish. Serv. (NMFS) to establish take reduction teams for certain MM to develop measures to reduce their incidental takes. This report determines the extent to which NMFS: (1) can identify the MM stocks that meet the MMPA's requirements for establishing such teams; (2) has established teams for those stocks that meet the requirements; (3) has met the MMPA's deadlines for the teams subject to them; and (4) evaluates the effectiveness of take reduction regulations.
