Representatives of the fisheries sector participate as well in order to improve dialogue related to protection and management of marine mammals between the environment and fisheries sectors. EG MaMa is the successor of the ad hoc SEAL Expert Group that was established according to Recommendation 27-28/2 and met annually since 2006.
