Context. Previous research has shown the presence of an endangered humpback whale population breeding off the Pacific coast of Central America. However, little is known about the density, size, social-group structure and spatial habitat use of this subpopulation. Aim. The study goal was to characterise a potential breeding subpopulation of humpback...
Documenting marine mammal strandings provides important information needed to understand the occurrence and distribution patterns of species. Here, we report on strandings of cetaceans on the Pacific ( n = 11) and Caribbean ( n = 2) coasts of Nicaragua, documented opportunistically from 2014 to 2021. Strandings included three species of baleen whal...
False Killer whales are listed as nearthreatened on IUCN red list, Lack of knowledgecon distribution and occurrence along the Pacific coast of Central America,
The North-East Pacific humpback whale population migrates to warm breeding grounds to give birth and reproduce. Although a lot of research effort has been put in place to understand general humpback whale migration behavior, little is known on the distribution of Mother-calf (MC) pairs in breeding grounds. The objective is to understand MC spatio-t...
Pantropical spotted dolphins (Stenella attenuata) are a widespread species in the Pacific Ocean. Recent genetic studies have confirmed that two subspecies (coastal and offshore) were identified along the Pacific coast from Mexico to Nicaragua. Studies using mark-recapture methods on pantropical spotted dolphins are scarce. This study offers a compa...
This is the first study that has been conducted in the waters of Nicaragua (Central America) along the Pacific Ocean to assess the diversity and occurrence of cetaceans. Boat based surveys were carried out in San Juan del Sur (South-Western Nicaragua) and in Padre Ramos (North-Western Nicaragua) in August 2015 and January -March 2016. Boat based su...
Our planet is changing, and one of the most pressing challenges facing the scientific community revolves around understanding how ecological communities respond to global changes. From coastal to deep-sea ecosystems, ecol-ogists are exploring new areas of research to find model organisms that help predict the future of life on our planet. Among the...
