Badrudeen, M and Nammalwar, P and Dorairaj, K (2004) Status of sea cow Dugong dugon (Muller) along the Southeast coast of India. Journal of the Bombay Natural History Society, 101 (3). pp. 381-387.
Observations on the stranding and incidental catch of sea cow Dugong dugon (Muller) along the southeast coast of India are reviewed here. The number of incidental catch and stranded Dugongs were greater in the Gulf of Mannar than in the Palk Bay region during 1994-2000. The need for protection and conservation of Dugongs from indiscriminate exploitation are stressed upon to evolve suitable management strategies.
