Dolphins and whales in danger

Wounded Dolphin

Every two minutes a dolphin, porpoise or whale dies unnecessarily in fishing nets. Bycatch is the greatest threat to dolphins. Why? The demand for fish is so great that all sorts of fish are sought now that were not fished in the past. This is the case of the round sardinella in the Albaron Sea, where large catches are a danger for just one of the healthiest dolphin populations in the Mediterranean Sea. Modern shipping has opened up the way for industrial fishing in the past century. Whales remain an important source of protein for the Japanese. Whales are also killed for fish oils, for lubricants and for cosmetics. Dolphins are also killed for consumption. You will see a link below that shows the sad way in which we humans treat the sea. http://www.glumbert.com/media/dolphin
