To mitigate the effects of an oil spill, it is important to understand the distribution and seasonal occurrence of marine mammals in the area. A study of passive acoustic monitoring (PAM) with a widely spread array of acoustic recorders across the license area will provide insight to the seasonal occurrence and spatial distribution of the marine mammal species that are acoustically active. During the fieldwork in September the remaining four moorings which were deployed from R/V Dana in 2017 (See map) will be retrieved using  the inspection ship "Vædderen" as a platform
