Black Sea cetaceans, ROSCI0066 Danube Delta site, ADD/PINGER, strandings, accidental catches
Within the project “Improving the Conservation Status of Marine Biodiversity in the Romanian Coastal Zone, Particularly Dolphins”, which is carried out in the site ROSCI0066 Danube Delta - the marine area, data were collected on the presence of cetaceans in Romanian coastal waters or stranded on shore, during 2010 and 2011. As a solution to the major problem that dolphins face in the Black Sea, namely accidental tangling in fishing nets (most often fatal), the cetaceans are tried to be removed by modern technological methods, namely the location of acoustic dolphin warning devices on fishing nets (ADDs/PINGERS). The study is an overview of the results obtained so far, as well as the usefulness of the acoustic warning devices.
