  • Description:
    A number of studies have documented adverse health effects (e.g., skin lesions, electrolyte imbalance, microbial infection, and death) in bottlenose dolphins exposed to low salinity. In addition, some data exist on physiological responses in dolphins when water salinity is varied in a controlled manner. Our goal is to compile, synthesize, and summarize current knowledge of likely pathways and salinity/time combinations associated with adverse health effects in bottlenose dolphins following exposure to low salinity waters. Significant data gaps are anticipated with insufficient data points within historical and current research. This bibliography is broken into three sections: biological, behavioral, and environmental. Each section is an overview of the available literature specific to bottlenose dolphins, salinity, and that relationship.
