CODE OF CONDUCT DURING THE ENCOUNTER WITH DOLPHIN OR WHALE

There are nine species of Cetaceans (whales, dolphins) that occasionally appear or live in the Croatian territorial waters: Fin Whale (Balaenoptera physalus), Common Dolphin (Delphinus delphis), Long-finned Pilot Whale (Globicephala melas), Risso's Dolphin (Grampus griseus), Sperm Whale (Physeter macrocephalus), False Killer Whale (Pseudorca crassidens), Striped Dolphin (Stenella coeruleoalba), Bottlenose Dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) and Curvier's Beaked Whale (Ziphius cavirostris). Among them, only Bottlenose Dolphin is a resident of the Adriatic sea.

Whales and dolphins are at the top of the food chain of marine ecosystems and have an affect on the structure and function of the system. They are also migratory species which need a greater living space. Therefore, they are mostly threatened by humans. The main causes of their vulnerability at the global level are: noise, pollution, fishing and habitat loss. Incidental catch in fishing tools is the main threat to Cetaceans in the Adriatic sea.
