First Paragraph

The National Marine Mammal Laboratory (NMML) was established in 1978 by the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) to study marine mammals worldwide in order to meet international commitments and domestic legislation. Located at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Sand Point facility along Lake Washington in Seattle, the NMML is a division of the Northwest and Alaska Fisheries Center (NWAFC) and is housed in 2,500 m2 of office and laboratory space, including a marine mammal library containing over 20,000 holdings.
