Title: Body Mass Indices of stranded Steno dolphins in the Southeast Region in 2004 and 2005
Status: Completed
Creation Date: 2004
Revision Date: 2019
Publication Date: 2019
Abstract:

This study compared morphology and body mass index (BMI) in two rough-toothed dolphin mass stranding events in Florida: August 2004 (n = 36) and March 2005 (n = 32).

Purpose:

To list the Body Mass Indices from two mass standings of dolphins in Florida, one in August, 2004 and the other in March, 2005.

Data Quality

Bias:

Standard protocols were used to ensure that morphologic measurements were taken in a consistent manner. Length was taken by measuring the straight line distance from the tip of the snout to the notch of the flukes; while blubber thickness was measured along the maximum girth, anterior to the dorsal fin insertion, transecting at dorsal midline, midlateral, and ventral midline areas
