Aquatic Mammals is the oldest peer-reviewed journal publishing papers on marine mammal science (since 1974). The journal publishes articles related to marine mammals (whales, dolphins, seals, fur seals, sea lions, walrus, dugongs, manatees, sea otters, and polar bears). Topics of publication on both captive animals and wild marine mammals include aspects of husbandry; animal behavior; conservation; veterinary medicine; anatomy; physiology; animal training; population trends; and the effects of pollution, climate change, and ocean noise.
