Notes

  • S9632 - No recent information to assess population size estimate.
  • T7788 - The IWC analysis reports a decreasing trend for 2010-2019 (0.8898) and over 3 generations 2009-2019 (0.9075) and with a moderate decrease over 1989-2019 (0.9154). Low reported numbers from the AWC suggest only a small proportion of the population is monitored. Therefore, it is not considered representative of the population. AWC is not appropriate to monitor the trend of this cryptic species.
