Title: GoM Estuarine Bottlenose Dolphin Photo-identification studies - NRDA
Status: Completed

These data have been used to support estimates of reproductive success and estimate abundance of bottlenose dolphins in support of the injury assessment for the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.


To determine abundance and reproductive success of bottlenose dolphins in estuarine waters of the Gulf of Mexico


Small boat based photo-identifcation studies of bottlenose dolphins in estuaries of the Northern Gulf of Mexico within areas impacted by the DWH oil spill. Data include information on the location and group size of animals, survey effort, and identification photographs with associated documentation on matching of images of individual animals. These photos and associated data are incorporated into a custom database system based upon an Access database structure (FINBASE). These data are incorporated into the NRDA assessment and therefore may have restrictions on their public distribution.
