    Abstract

    On 23rd August 2013, a Risso’s Dolphin was nearly stranded on the Aligadda beach, Karwar. The dolphin appeared to be under stress and it was coming towards the shore. On seeing the dolphin, the local fishermen dragged it into the deeper waters to rescue. This dolphin is locally known as “God’s fish”, and hence the rescue operation was carried out by the local fishermen.
