Whalewatching research encompasses a wide variety of disciplines and fields of study including monitoring the biological impacts of whalewatching activities on cetaceans and assessments of the effectiveness of whalewatching management and regulations, to the sociological and economic aspects of whalewatching on communities hosting such activities. Many of these research activities are of interest to the Whalewatching Sub-Committee of the International Whaling Commission, in particular research on the impacts of whalewatching, and whalewatching as a source of scientific data that could be used in management decisions. This paper is the latest of a series of annual digests that describes the variety and findings of whalewatching studies published since the 58th Annual meeting of the IWC, in 2006.
