Abstract

Reports on the accidental stranding and inadvertant landings of marine mammals, mostly dolphins, porpoises and dugongs by different gears such as drift gillnets, trawlnets, purse seines etc., along the Indian coasts are well documented by different workers in recent days. Consequent to the sustained efforts by different International Agencies, awareness is created among the public on the conservation of the endangered marine mammals and on certain occasions the people themselves get involved in the act of saving the lives of marine mammals.
