  • Description:
    "Since the large scale mortality event of 1987-1988, much attention has been focused on the bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) inhabiting the waters of the Atlantic seaboard of the United States. As a result of this event, the "coastal migratory stock" of bottlenose dolphins has been designated as "depleted" under the Marine Mammal Protection Act The defining parameters for this depleted stock are poorly understood, however, and the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), has specified the identification and characterization .of bottlenose dolphin stocks in the northeast Atlantic as a priority. In its management role, NMFS needs to be able to evaluate the impact of the mortality event on specific populations of dolphins. As one of the first steps, stock identification requires information on geographical ranging patternS. Resulting hypotheses about stock discreteness can be tested subsequently through genetic analyses. In addition to tagging and telemetry, photographic identification (photo-ID) has proved to be a powerful tool for determining the ranging patterns of individual dolphins"--Introduction, paragraph 1.
