Abstract

Multi-sensor biologgers are a powerful method for studying individual behaviors of free-ranging species, yet the challenges of attaching non-invasive biologgers to agile, fast-moving marine species have prohibited application of this technique to small (<5 m) cetaceans. Integration of video...

Abstract

Guidelines for sustainable tourism involving swimming with large whales are not well-developed compared to those focused on programs of swimming with delphinids. From September to November 2005 and August to September 2006, we collected behavioral and movement data for southern right whales (...

Abstract

The small, genetically distinct population of Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops aduncus) in Port Stephens, New South Wales (NSW), is the target of the largest dolphin-watching industry in Australia and is located within the Port Stephens - Great Lakes Marine Park that was created in 2005....

Abstract

We used acoustic telemetry to describe the spatial and temporal patterns of habitat use of one of the species most targeted by recreational anglers in the NW Mediterranean, Serranus cabrilla (Linnaeus, 1758). Temporal patterns and fish position were determined using a fixed-receiver array located...
