WGMME provides input for ICES advice in relation to marine mammal ecology.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The group examines and reviews information on population sizes, distribution, population/stock structure and management frameworks for marine mammals in the North Atlantic. It also focuses on anthropogenic impacts on marine mammals, including their mitigation, particularly impacts from bycatch (in this respect linking with the Working Group on Bycatch of Protected Species) and from marine industries.

The work of WGMME improves our understanding of the ecological role of marine mammals, and is used to underpin advice on the implementation of the ecosystem approach and on human impacts on marine mammals.
