About This Project

How we find out what dolphins eat is by retrieving dead dolphins, collecting the contents of their stomach, and identifying these stomach contents.This method provides only a snapshot of recently consumed prey. Now we can use natural tracers like stable isotopes to describe feeding habits of dolphins. To test the hypothesis that food resources are shared among dolphins that occupy same area without overlap, skin samples will be collected and analyzed for carbon and nitrogen stable isotope ratios
