In the Coral Sea, short-finned pilot whales and false killer whales are the main species responsible for depredation. Recognising that there would be no single effective method to provide relief from depredation, a range of strategies are under continual development. Early international depredation mitigation symposia were directed more to marine mammal conservation with little focus given to the fishing industry. However, recent symposia such as the October 2006 Pender Island Symposium and the July 2007 IOTC Depredation Symposium, and initiatives of the Western Pacific Regional Fishery Management Council have placed more attention toward the capability of the fishing industry to cope with depredation.
