In this paper we examine the summer distribution of three species of small odontocetes in the highly productive waters in and near the Gully, a submarine canyon on the edge of the Scotian Shelf. Atlantic white-sided dolphins (Lagenorhynchus acutus) and common dolphins (Delphinus delphis) were not randomly distributed with respect to depth, sea-floor relief, month of sighting, or sea-surface temperature. Long-finned pilot whales (Globicephala melas) were not randomly distributed with respect to… Expand
