A Conservation Literature Review for the Harbour Porpoise (Phocoena phocoena) 2015


Cetaceans in a given area are usually part of a larger and more widespread biological population. As a consequence of their wide ranges, all cetaceans are protected internationally through various conventions and agreements. Consequently, to be effective, their conservation needs must be considered on an international basis including the monitoring and surveillance essential to meet the requirements of the EU Habitats Directive and the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD).
