Abstract Review of New Information on Population Size, Distribution, Structure and Causes of Any Changes. The distribution of small cetaceans in the offshore areas of the North Sea has been in the interest of researchers for many years. Information on abundance and distribution is essential to assess the impact of bycatch and other anthropogenic threats, and as basis for management plans to ensure the favourable conservation status of these species. In 2011 we conducted a dedicated aerial line transect survey of the Dogger Bank and adjacent areas (UK, NL, DK, GE waters) in order to investigate the importance of this marine feature as summer habitat for marine mammals.
