    About This Project

    In a two-year study, we found seasonal residents but no year-round dolphins off the coast off northern South Carolina. This area is described to include four overlapping stocks (one migratory, one coastal and two estuarine), yet stock boundaries and seasonal movements are not well defined. I intend to discover where northern SC dolphins go by comparing dorsal fin catalogs to neighboring areas. Defined boundaries and movements helps managers assess threats and plan to prevent population decline.
