Clymene dolphins are fairly active dolphins and frequently jump and spin. They are in the same genus (Stenella) as the spinner dolphin, the Atlantic spotted dolphin, and the spotted dolphin, and are known to be smaller those species.

Clymene dolphins, like all marine mammals, are protected under the Marine Mammal Protection Act.

NOAA Fisheries is committed to conserving and protecting Clymene dolphins. Our scientists and partners use a variety of innovative techniques to study, learn more about, and protect this species.
