Description

Original provider: Jonian Dolphin Conservation Dataset credits: Jonian Dolphin Conservation (JDC) Abstract: Founded in 2009, Jonian Dolphin Conservation (JDC) is a naturalistic association specializing in cetacean research, dolphin watching and educational programs. JDC has been studying the cetaceans of the Taranto coastal zone since April 2009. The research area is a wide band of sea between Ginosa Marina and Taranto. We work all year in the Ionian sea on a group of resident Striped Dolphin, and frequently we sight other species of cetaceans including Fin Whale, Risso's Dolphin and Bottlenose Dolphin. Purpose: The Jonian Dolphin Conservation di Taranto has been studying the cetaceans of the Taranto coastal zone since April 2009. The research area is a wide band of sea 100 mi2, between Ginosa Marina and Taranto. We've spent almost 760 hours at sea and 140 hours with cetaceans. The surveys were conducted aboard a rubber dinghy 8.20 meters, equipped for ocean navigation. Normally, we use two different types of navigation: free surveys (carried out without following predefined routes) and surveys along linear transect. Supplemental information: 11/29/2012: This dataset was updated with 2012 data.
