he European Association for Aquatic Mammals (E.A.A.M.) The European Association for Aquatic Mammals (EAAM) was formed in 1972 in The Netherlands as an interest group of zoological parks and individuals working with marine mammals under human care. In August 2012, the EAAM was re-established as a non-profit association in Brussels, Belgium.
