http://great-smoky-mountains-park.org/nature-science/animals/fish IPCoMM was formally organized in Anchorage, Alaska in January 1992 following a Marine Mammal Conference in December 1991 sponsored by the Rural Alaska Community Action Program, Inc. Some identified long-term marine mammal issues at that time were: (1) MMPA reauthorization; (2) Co-management; and (3) Involving traditional knowledge in the subsistence issue
see Eighteen marine mammals commissions, councils and other Alaska Native organizations, plus one observer, are members of IPCoMM. IPCoMM plans meetings twice a year during which members discuss issues of common concern regarding marine mammal conservation and subsistence.
