Almost every cetacean species shows a worrying population decline in the entire Mediterranean Sea, which has resulted in their classification as either endangered, or vulnerable on the IUCN Red List. Currently, not only the coastal species but also the pelagic species of cetaceans show patchy and scarce distributions in locations where they were on...

The Mediterranean subpopulation of common bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) is classed as vulnerable with a decreasing population trend. Yet, research effort in the Mediterranean varies with relatively little being known of the Southern Adriatic Sea's bottlenose dolphins, which face increasing numbers of anthropogenic threats, mainly marine...

Five cetacean species are known to inhabit the Adriatic Sea. While bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) are the most commonly reported species of the Adriatic, they show mainly coastal distribution from its southern to the northern boundaries. On the other hand, striped dolphins (Stenella coeruleoalba), Risso’s dolphins (Grampus griseus) and Cu...
The common bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) is the most regularly sighted cetacean in the Adriatic. However, anthropogenic and environmental pressures are accelerating the decline of this species. Prior to this study, there was a lack of long-term monitoring in Montenegrin waters; much like other Southern Adriatic countries which are conside...

A lack of baseline knowledge is one of the biggest barriers in the way of effective conservation and management of endangered species. Montenegro is the only country in the Adriatic Sea apart from Bosnia and Herzegovina (coastline = 20 km) with no marine protected areas. Land- and boat-based surveys began in September 2016 to increase knowledge abo...
