Title: Bottlenose dolphin age structure and growth in the Mississippi Sound region of the Gulf of Mexico
Status: Completed
Abstract:

Teeth were collected from bottlenose dolphins that stranded within the north-central Gulf of Mexico between 1986-2003. These teeth were sectioned and growth rings were used to estimate the age of individual animals, and these estimates were used to develop sex-specific growth curves. These curves can be used to estimate the age of stranded animals based upon their observed length and provide insight into the demographics and population dynamics of bottlenose dolphins in the North-Central Gulf of Mexico.

Purpose:

To develop length-age relationships for Gulf of Mexico bottlenose dolphins.
