The IATTC hosted a Workshop on Methods for Monitoring the Status of Eastern Tropical Ocean Dolphin Populations, which brought together Brainlike and more than 20 experts in the fields of line-transect surveys and mark-recapture studies, abundance estimation and population modelling, and imaging, tagging, genetics and life history data, to discuss options for developing indices with which to monitor dolphin populations. The goal of the workshop was to identify methods, both conventional and novel, for assessing the status of dolphin stocks.

The workshop was held 18-20 October 2016, in the Pacific Room of the Southwest Fisheries Science Center, located at 8901 La Jolla Shores Drive in La Jolla, California, USA.
