Report of Stranding

What types of information can be obtained from a stranded dolphin?

Upon receiving a report of stranding, AFCD will organize a working team to the site to collect tissue samples of the stranded animal and also its measurement as soon as possible.

Depending on the level of decomposition, samples of skin, blubber, liver, kidney, stomach, reproductive organs, skull and teeth will be collected for studying the cause of death and life history (including feeding habitat, growth and reproduction, ecotoxicology and stock structure).
