Dear All,

Apologies for cross posting. 

We would like to inform you that the new paper on Cetacean sightings in the
Finike (Anaximander) Seamounts area and adjacent waters has been published
in the Journal of the Black Sea/Mediterranean Environment.

The pdf copy is available online via the following link.


Dede, A., Öztürk Ayaka, A., Tonay, A.M., Özsandıkçı, U., Gönülal, O.,
Öztürk, B. 2022. Cetacean sightings in the Finike Seamounts area and
adjacent waters during the surveys in 2021. J. Black Sea/Mediterranean
Environment 28(2): 221-239.



The Finike Seamounts (Anaximander) was declared as the "Finike Seamounts
Special Environmental Protection Area (SEPA)" by Republic of Türkiye in
2013. In order to determine the presence of cetaceans living in the region
and its adjacent waters, visual observations were carried out with the
standard line transect method as well as passive acoustic recordings at 21
stations in two boat surveys in spring and autumn 2021. A total of 1621
nautical miles were covered in both surveys. Sperm whales were detected
visually and acoustically. Other deep-diving species, Cuvier's beaked whale,
was observed once, as well as delphinid species, such as the striped
dolphins (two groups) and bottlenose dolphins (7 groups). Delphinids were
also detected acoustically in 8 stations. Although the surveys were made
only in two seasons in one year, it was shown that the cetaceans use the
surveyed area and their presence must be taken into consideration in the
management of the Finike Seamounts SEPA.
