Guide to the UK Cetaceans and Seals
Many large sea mammals, including whales, dolphins, porpoises and seals, can be seen around the UK's coast. Both their behaviour at sea and their body features, such as the shape of the tail and dorsal fin as they break the water surface, will help you to identify most species.

This is the ultimate instruction manual for mitigation measures to minimise man-made acoustical and physical disturbances to marine mammals from industrial and defence activities. Based on more than two decades of offshore experience, and a decade of supplying MMO (Marine Mammal Observer) and PAM (Passive Acoustic Monitoring) services, both commercial and scientific, the Handbook is a long-overdue reference guide that seeks to improve standards worldwide for marine operations such as seismic and drilling exploration, wind farm piling, civil engineering, dredging, rock-dumping, and hydrographical surveys. By popular request, this manual will also form an accompaniment to MMO and PAM courses.
