Abstract

The dolphins are common in the Gulf of Mannar near Mandapam. Five of them were caught by the fishermen in trawler or gill net in the neighbourhood of Krusadai Island in the Gulf of Mannar in the winter months of 1980 to 1982. They were studied for the species identity and their stomach contents. Data regarding the date, place of collection weight, sex and essential body measurements of all specimens were recorded.
