General Movement Patterns

Dolphin Movements by Geographic Location

In an ongoing review of data collected with Dolphinfish Research Program (DRP) from 2002-2017, dolphin movement linkages between geographic locations are beginning to emerge.  This brief article is to serve as a visual review of some of the main movement linkages observed since the DRP started.

With more than 23,000 fish tagged by the end of 2017 the 571 recoveries generated from that 16-year effort has led to the world’s first look at dolphin movement linkages within the WCA by location.  In Florida alone, more than 236 in-state movements stand to reveal detailed movement dynamics by season and location, an analysis that is ongoing.  Below is a slideshow of some of the movement linkages observed to date.
