Atlantic Large Whale Take Reduction Team Meeting
NOAA's National Marine Fisheries Service
Dr. Raab facilitated portions of the Atlantic Large Whale Take Reduction Team (ALWTRT) meeting in Providence, Rhode Island. The meeting goal was to develop and discuss potential modifications to the ALWTRP to further reduce impacts of U.S. fixed gear fisheries on large whales and reduce mortality and serious injury to below PBR for right whales.

The Atlantic Large Whale Take Reduction Team is one of several take reduction teams established by NOAA's National Marine Fisheries Service (NOAA Fisheries) to help develop plans to mitigate the risk to marine mammals posed by fishing gear. TRTs were established as advisory teams under the Marine Mammal Protection Act. The Atlantic Large Whale Take Reduction Team was established in 1996 and is composed of fishermen, scientists, conservationists, and state and federal officials.
