More than 1220 strandings of Black Sea cetaceans – harbour porpoises, common dolphins and bottlenose dolphins – have been recorded on the coasts of Crimea peninsula during 22 years (1989-2010) by the cetacean stranding network coordinated from the Brema Laboratory. The dataset includes information about live-stranded animals and findings of cetacean carcasses. The data make it possible to ascertain several cetacean mass mortality events occurred in different years of the monitoring.
