National Marine Mammal Laboratory

Research projects
focus on ecology and behavior, population dynamics, life history, and status and trends. Information is provided to various domestic and international organizations to assist in developing rational and appropriate management regimes for marine resources under NOAA's jurisdiction. These organizations include the NMFS Alaska and Northwest Regional Offices, the NMFS Office of Protected Resources, the North Pacific Fisheries Management Council, the International Whaling Commission, and the Arctic Council. Research conducted by NMML utilizes a variety of methods and tools to obtain needed information. Determination of status and trends of marine mammal populations requires information on abundance, stock structure, mortality and net productivity. To obtain these data, censuses are carried out from ships, aircraft and on land. Radio and satellite-linked telemetry is utilized to determine movements and migrations, critical feeding areas and depths, and other behavioral data. Sophisticated analyses and modeling are carried out to determine necessary population parameters. Research programs are carried out cooperatively with many other federal, state and private sector collaborators.

Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphin
(Tursiops melaena) The bottlenose dolphin is perhaps the most familiar of the sea mammals. Their gentle nature has endeared them in our hearts. These highly social animals have actually been known to rescue humans from danger. They are intelligent creatures with a brain size similar to ours. Some scientists believe they are capable of complex communication skills. Atlantic Spotted Dolphin
(Stenella frontalis) The Atlantic spotted dolphin looks very similar to the bottlenose dolphin except for the noticeable body spots. They are generally somewhat smaller than their cousins. As with all dolphins they travel in close family groups called pods. Pilot Whale
(Globicephala melaena) The pilot whale is a small member of the whale family, averaging about 10 feet in length. They are perhaps better known for the mass strandings in which entire pods of these animals will beach themselves in an apparent attempt at suicide. This behavior has yet to be explained. Killer Whale
(Orcinus orca) The killer whale of Shamu and "Free Willy" fame is a highly intelligent and very sociable animal. It is a standard attraction at most marine parks. Pods of Orcas have been known to work together when hunting for food. They will even temporarily beach themselves to catch one of their favorite foods - the sea lion.

    Beaked whales being removed from the beach after a mass stranding, Canary Islands, 2002 RECENT SONAR-LINKED STRANDINGS
    Numerous mass stranding events and whale deaths across the globe have been linked to military sonar use. October 1989: At least 20 whales of three species strand during naval exercises near the Canary Islands. December 1991: Two Cuvier's beaked whales strand during naval exercises near the Canary Islands. May 1996: Twelve Cuvier's beaked whales strand on the west coast of Greece as NATO ships sweep the area with low- and mid-frequency active sonar.

    African Marine Mammals
    With the help of marine mammal scientists in the United States and abroad, the information on these pages has been pulled together to provide a brief overview of the marine mammal species that can be found in African waters. Where possible, information about localized research and/or species distribution in Africa has been included. These pages were compiled by Nicole Le Boeuf who is now at the National Marine Fisheries Service's Office of Protected Resources and Dagmar Fertl of the Minerals Management Service. The pages are designed to be public-friendly. They include information on the description, biology, current threats to these species, and much more. If you would like to contribute information, especially pertaining to specific research findings in Africa or would like to submit photographs to be included in the pages, please feel free to contact Brent Hall at Class: Mammalia
