2012 Seal Tagging Expeditions

Posted 04/24/2012

The 2012 seal tagging studies in Chatham, MA and Rockland, ME, are part of ongoing research underway at the Northeast Fisheries Science Center (NEFSC)'s Woods Hole Laboratory but are also part of a much larger, multi-year survey of marine mammals, sea turtles and seabirds along the U.S. East Coast which the NEFSC is leading on behalf of four federal agencies. That project, the Atlantic Marine Assessment Program for Protected Species, or AMAPPS, is just getting underway for 2012.
