Notes

  • S6936 - Simmons et al. 2007. As counts fluctuate, sometimes over 11,200, this range is more appropriate.
  • S1689 - 881. As counts fluctuate, sometimes over 11,200, this range is more appropriate.
  • S8696 - Simmons (2002) gave estimate of 11,200, whilst Simmons et al. (2007) gave 11,500 based on later counts.
  • T7005 - Long-term trend is strong increase based on the IWC counts, but may only reflect better counts. Short-term trend is uncertain or declining depending on the statistics used for assessment.
