Abstract

A plan for a dedicated sighting survey in the North Pacific in 2018 was presented to the 2017 IWC SC meeting. The survey will be conducted as planned using the research vessel Yushin-maru No. 2 (YS2). In addition to this, two additional dedicated sighting surveys are planned for 2018 using the research vessel Kaiyo-maru No. 7 (KY7). The objective of this paper is to outline i) the research plan for the additional dedicated sighting surveys in 2018; and ii) the research plan for a dedicated sighting survey in 2019 under the NEWREP-NP in the western North Pacific. The main objective of the surveys is to examine the distribution and estimate the abundance of common minke whales for management and conservation purposes.
