Lipton, A P and Diwan, A D and Regunathan, A and Kasinathan, C (1995) Frequent strandings of dolphins and whales along the gulf of Mannar coast. Marine Fisheries Information Service, Technical and Extension Series, 138 . pp. 11-14.
The present observations no specific reason could be attributed towards the frequent strandlngs of marine mammals in the Gulf of Meinnar region. It Is inferred that any one factor as given above or more would have contributed towards the strandlngs. As the Indian Ocean is declared as a sanctuary for whales,the frequent stranding of whales eind dolphins emphasise the need for Intensive study on conservation measures. The scientific Information on the extent of strandlngs of marine mammals all along the coast needs consolidation.
