Research on marine mammals was conducted in 1988-2006 and sightings were collected from each ferry on the Adriatic Sea. The lines included: Italy, Yugoslavia, Albania, and Greece. We had 175 sightings in 12 years. For each sighting, we collected: date, time, weather condition, sea position, numbers of animals, kind of animals, depth and so on.
This research was conducted to observe and study the biological competition between humans and dolphins (both of them are catching blue fish). All of the data collected was used for the thesis degree of Luca Giovagnoli at Parma University - Vet Medicine.
Data provided to OBIS-SEAMAP are from 1988-2000 and other years of data from this project are currently being worked on.
Erroneous points (i.e., on land or otherwise) were excluded.
