Dead dolphins wash up in France in record numbers
MetadataShow full item record
hundreds of dead dolphins have been washing up on France’s Atlantic coast in such high numbers that local populations of the mammals are at risk, marine biologists say. The majority drowned in the nets of fishing trawlers. Post mortems often show fractures, broken tails and flippers and deep incisions cut into their skin by the nets. Some have been mutilated as fishermen release their bodies. Scientists believe the number to be up to 10 times higher.
