This 2012 edition of the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico Marine Mammal Stock Assessment Reports differs from previous editions in that it has been published in two volumes. This was done because ten of the Atlantic reports required a second period of scientific and public review due to some changes in abundance estimates. Rather than delay publishing the remainder of the stocks, the decision was made to publish those as volume 1. Reports for North Atlantic stocks of sei whale, fin whale, minke whale, sperm whale, harbor porpoise, white-sided-dolphin, Risso’s dolphin and the Cuvier’s, Gervais’ and Sowerby’s beaked whales are now available, and are contained in volume 2.
