Radio tracking finless porpoises (Neophocaena phocaenoides): Preliminary evaluation of a potential technique, with cautions

Würsig, B.; Wang, D.; Zhang, X.
Biology and Conservation of Freshwater Cetaceans in Asia (2000)

Three finless porpoises (Neophocaena phocaenoides) from the Yangtze River were fitted with cotton cloth vests and small radio transmitters. They were tracked for 2.6, 11.0, and 14.6 days in the…


Identification of high-risk areas for harbour porpoise Phocoena phocoena bycatch using remote electronic monitoring and satellite telemetry data

Kindt-Larsen, L.; Berg, C. W.; Tougaard, J.; Sørensen, T. K.; Geitner, K.; Northridge, S.; Sveegaard, S.; Larsen, F.
Marine Ecology Progress Series (2016)

The bycatch of harbour porpoise Phocoena phocoena is an issue of major concern for fisheries management and for porpoise conservation. We used high-resolution spatial and temporal data on porpoise abundance…


Spatial and temporal distribution of harbour porpoises in relation to their prey

Sveegaard, S.
Doctoral Thesis - Aarhus Universitet (2011)

The population status of harbour porpoises has been of concern for several years due to anthropogenic influences, especially incidental bycatch in gillnet fisheries. Proper management of a wide-ranging species such…


Comparing distribution of harbour porpoises (Phocoena phocoena) derived from satellite telemetry and passive acoustic monitoring

Mikkelsen, Lonnie; Rigét, Frank F.; Kyhn, Line A.; Sveegaard, Signe; Dietz, Rune; Tougaard, Jakob; Carlström, Julia A. K.; Carlén, Ida; Koblitz, Jens C.; Teilmann, Jonas
PLOS ONE (2016)

Cetacean monitoring is essential in determining the status of a population. Different monitoring methods should reflect the real trends in abundance and patterns in distribution, and results should therefore ideally…


Behaviour and physiological effects of transmitter attachments on a captive harbour porpoise (Phocoena phocoena)

Geertsen, B. M.; Teilmann, J.; Kastelein, R. A.; Vlemmix, H. N. J.; Miller, L. A.
Journal of Cetacean Research and Management (2004)

A captive harbour porpoise (Phocoena phocoena) was monitored for 80 consecutive days, 10 days before attachment of a satellite dive recorder and a VHF-radio tag, 30 days during attachment and…


Quantitative measures of anthropogenic noise on harbor porpoises: Testing the reliability of acoustic tag recordings

Wisniewska, Danuta M.; Teilmann, Jonas; Hermannsen, Line; Johnson, Mark; Miller, Lee A.; Siebert, Ursula; Madsen, Peter Teglberg
The Effects of Noise on Aquatic Life II (2016)

In recent years, several sound and movement recording tags have been developed to sample the acoustic field experienced by cetaceans and their reactions to it. However, little is known about…
