Aquatic Mammals (1974)


The rearing of unweaned dolphins has hitherto not been described in literature. In 1973 our laboratory received 2 juvenile harbour porpoises (Phocoena phocoena) and we succeeded in rearing them on chopped herring, water and vitamins. At the time of writing, September 1974, the animals are in good condition and have adapted well to the captive environment.
