Rako, N., Holcer, D. & Fortuna, C. M. (2009):
Long-term inshore observation of a solitary striped dolphin, Stenella
coeruleoalba, in the Vinodol Channel, Northern Adriatic Sea (Croatia). Nat.
Croat., Vol. 18, No. 2., 427-436.
The striped dolphin (Stenella coeruleoalba) is not a common cetacean species
in the northern Adriatic Sea. Its presence is generally related to deeper
offshore areas beyond the continental shelf. Despite this fact, the analysis
of data collected over the past 5 years indicates unusual site fidelity of a
single individual in the relatively shallow Vinodol Channel of the northern
Croatian Adriatic Sea. Summarizing the available data on its recent
occurrence, this paper contributes to the current limited knowledge on
striped dolphin presence and associations not only in this region.
