Article
• Coastal cetaceans in Southeast Asia are poorly studied and are particularly vulnerable to anthropogenic threats, especially in intensive fishing grounds. • To investigate the distribution and habitat characteristics of cetaceans in the productive coastal waters of Matang, Perak, Malaysia, boat‐based line transect surveys were conducted between 20...

A 7-day survey for marine mammals in Tun Mustapha Park (TMP), Kudat, Sabah, was held 11-17 May 2017 during the Tun Mustapha Park Scientific Expedition 2017. Search effort totaled 27.3 hours and 424.9 km, and yielded a total of four sightings across three genera and three species of cetaceans. These were Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops ad...

Differences in the acoustic variables of whistles emitted by Indo-Pacific humpback dolphins (Sousa chinensis) from two coastal locations along western Peninsular Malaysia were investigated. Duration, frequency, and frequency modulation variables were extracted from and used to characterize recordings of free-ranging humpback dolphins that were made...

In recent decades, several studies and reviews have contributed new data on marine mammal composition and distribution in Vietnam, including surveys of whale temples along the coast in the southern part of the country. Whale temples have amassed a sizeable number of specimens that have been used as a valuable source of information concerning marine...
Article
• The paucity of baseline data on coastal cetaceans due to a lack of research in developing countries frequently precludes assessment of their status and informed management actions for conservation. • This study provides the first abundance estimates of Indo-Pacific humpback dolphins, Irrawaddy dolphins, and Indo-Pacific finless porpoises in the c...
Article
Relatively little is known about spinner dolphins in Malaysian waters and the wider Southeast Asian region. This note represents the first known acoustic recording of the species sighted opportunistically in the northern Straits of Malacca. Over a brief 20 min sighting, 46 whistles were recorded and four tonal types were detected, with 54.4% being...

The whistles of Irrawaddy dolphins (Orcaella brevirostris) from the waters of Matang, western Peninsular Malaysia are described. Duration, frequency and frequency modulation variables were measured from 163 whistles recorded using a broadband towed hydrophone. Irrawaddy dolphins produced whistles with a mean duration of 0.366 s (S.D. ± 0.217 s). Th...
Article
Background: The establishment of coral sperm repositories which retain good post-rewarming viability and fertility play a vital role in species conservation. Objective: This study aimed at obtaining baseline information regarding the effects of cryoprotectant agents (CPAs) on gorgonian coral (Junceella juncea and J. fragilis) sperm sacs. Method...
