Abstract : An integral part of a five-year program plan for advanced marine biosystems is research associated with personnel who train, operate, and handle marine mammals. The two objectives are to gain a better understanding of the personal attributes which tend to make for proficiency in relationships with marine mammals and to develop a procedure for selecting and assigning personnel who are to train, operate and handle marine mammals where such a procedure can be shown to provide greater cost-effectiveness than currently employed selection and assignment procedures.
