This manuscript reports on a scientific workshop on the marine mammals of the St. Lawrence Estuary held at the Maurice Lamontagne Institute in April 2000. The purpose of the workshop was to make a scientific assessment of the need for a marine protected area (MPA) in the St. Lawrence Estuary to protect marine mammals, their habitats and their food resources. Present and potential problems faced by marine mammals, arising essentially from human activities in the vicinity, were debated. The participants were then able to prioritize these various problems and weigh the adequacy of the MPA proposed boundaries. Disturbance, contamination and lack of knowledge were identified as the key problems. Finally, the participants determined that given the magnitude of the problems encountered by marine mammals, the establishment of the MPA was justified and indeed essential to the protection of these animals and their habitats.

This manuscript is the product of a scientific workshop held at the Maurice Lamontagne Institute in April 2000 on the marine mammals of the St. Lawrence estuary. The purpose of the workshop was to make a scientific assessment of the need for a marine protected area (MPA) in the St. Lawrence estuary to protect marine mammals, their habitat and their food resources. Present and potential problems faced by marine mammals, arising essentially from human activities in the vicinity, were debated, and participants were thus able to prioritize these various problems and weigh the adequacy of the proposed boundaries of the MPA. Disturbance, contamination and lack of knowledge were identified as the key problems. In conclusion, the participants determined that given the scale of the problems encountered by marine mammals, establishment of the MPA was justified, indeed was essential to the protection of these creatures and their habitats.
