On the north-eastern coast of Sardinia, from November 2004 to January 2006, the first attempt in the Mediterranean basin to obtain information on encounter rate, group size and incidental capture of bottlenose dolphins in a marine fish farm was assessed, combining direct observations from fish farm boats with photo-identification studies. During 15 months of research, 79 d (65.3% of the total monitored days) were spent in direct observation of 146 groups of bottlenose dolphins around the fish… 

Bottlenose dolphins and aquaculture: interaction and site fidelity on the north-eastern coast of Sardinia (Italy)

The occurrence of bottlenose dolphins appeared to be related with the seasons and with the fish farm harvesting operations, and the peak dolphin occurrence throughout Fall coincides with the period in which they spend most of their time foraging.

Ecology of common bottlenose dolphins along the North-western Sardinian coastal waters (Italy)

ABSTRACT In this paper, the temporal distribution of dolphins, group dynamics, site fidelity and abundance of common bottlenose dolphins along the North-western coastal waters of Sardinia (Italy) was

Ecology and conservation of common bottlenose dolphins Tursiops truncatus in the Mediterranean Sea

Bottlenose dolphins Tursiops truncatus are amongst the best-known cetaceans. In the Mediterranean Sea, however, modern field studies of cetaceans did not start until the late 1980s. Bottlenose

Marine aquaculture and bottlenose dolphins’ (Tursiops truncatus) social structure

In this study, we investigate association patterns of 249 bottlenose dolphin feeding groups off Sardinia Island (Italy) from January 2000–May 2007 and describe how their association behaviour is

The impact of shellfish farming on common bottlenose dolphins’ use of habitat

New insights are provided into the understanding of how shellfish aquaculture influences coastal dolphins and hence support the design of policies aimed at implementing ecosystem management principles.

Underwater observations of bottlenose dolphin feeding behaviour in a marine fin fish farm on the Sardinian coast in Italy from 2000 to 2005 suggest that the use of different feeding strategies is consistent with the hypothesis that Bottlenose dolphins apply common decision rules in relation to prey availability, resulting in theUse of different foraging techniques.

It is recommended that owing to potential for entanglement, chemical and sound pollution, habitat loss or gross alteration, traffic, and changes in species interactions, all proposed development of marine aquaculture in nature should be subjected to initial evaluations and scientific research relative to interactions between the food being raised by humans and the predators that attempt to take advantage of this.
