    Abstract

    Age of the dolphins Delphinus delphis Linnaeus, Stenella longirostris (Gray), Sousa chinensis (Osbeck), Tursiops truncatus (Montagu), Neophocaena phocaenoides (Cuvier) and Pseudorca crassidens (Owen) found along the Kerala coast are determined based on the growth layers in the teeth. The teeth samples were collected from dolphins landed as by-catch in the gillnets. The growth layers offer reliable information on the age of dolphins. This is the first attempt in India to study the age of dolphins based on the growth layers.
