During 1991–1997, five and three surveys were conducted in the middle and lower reaches, respectively, of the Yangtze River. The target species of the surveys included both the baiji (Lipotes…


Habitat preferences and interannual variability in occurrence of the harbour porpoise Phocoena phocoena off northwest Scotland

Marubini, F.; Gimona, A.; Evans, P. G. H.; Wright, P. J.; Pierce, G. J.
Marine Ecology Progress Series (2009)

The harbour porpoise Phocoena phocoena is the most common cetacean around the British Isles, but knowledge of its ecology, habitat preferences and inter-annual variability is still inadequate. Here, sightings collected…


Changes in the occurrence of common dolphins, striped dolphins and harbour porpoises in the English Channel and Bay of Biscay

MacLeod, Colin D.; Brereton, Tom; Martin, Clive
Journal of the Marine Biological Association of the United Kingdom (2008)

Regular monitoring of the status of cetacean populations is essential for conservation, policy and management. By using a passenger ferry as a scientific research platform, this study provides information on…

McGovern, Barry; Culloch, Ross M.; O'Connell, Michael; Berrow, Simon
Journal of the Marine Biological Association of the United Kingdom (2016)

Using Irish strandings data collected between 2002 and 2014, seasonal and annual trends in the number of strandings for all strandings identified to species level (N = 1480), and for…


The possible reasons for bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) participating in non-predatory aggressive interactions with harbour porpoises (Phocoena phocoena) in Cardigan Bay, Wales

Neale, Leonora
Honour's Thesis - University of Nottingham (2013)

Between 1991 and 2011, 137 harbour porpoises (Phocoena phocoena) died as a result of attacks by bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) in Cardigan Bay. The suggested reasons for these non-predatory aggressive…


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…


Cetacean distribution and abundance in relation to oceanographic domains on the eastern Bering Sea shelf, June and July of 2002, 2008, and 2010

Friday, Nancy A.; Zerbini, Alexandre N.; Waite, Janice M.; Moore, Sue E.; Clapham, Phillip J.
Deep Sea Research Part II: Topical Studies in Oceanography (2013)

As part of the Bering Sea Project, cetacean surveys were conducted to describe distribution and estimate abundance on the eastern Bering Sea shelf. Three marine mammal observers conducted visual surveys…
