"In 1996 the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), Southwest Fisheries Science Center (SWFSC) sponsored the first comprehensive survey of marine mammals fully encompassing the exclusive economic zone and adjacent waters out to 300 nautical miles from shore along the West Coast of the contiguous United States ... In continuation of the work begun with that survey, and in an effort to better understand the ecosystems involved, the SWFSC sponsored another marine mammal survey of this area in 2001, titled the Oregon, California, and Washington Line Transect Expedition (ORCAWALE). The information collected from these endeavors is summarized in this report. SURVEY OBJECTIVES: The primary goal of this expedition was to estimate the abundance and distribution of cetaceans by visual and acoustic methods. Concurrent with the abundance estimation, the expedition collected oceanographic data, as well as other forms of biological data, to contribute to a more thorough understanding of the environment in which these species are found.
