Croatian Adriatic

Category: General – Tags: , – Joan – 6:03 pm

A marine ecosystem collapse the once great Dolphin stocks in the Croatian Adriatic exist only in the tales of old fisherman. Water pollution, overfishing, bycatch-death in fishing nets and direct killing left the stocks collapse. Only one species was robust enough to withstand the destruction campaign: the bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) or “Good Dolphin” (Dobri Dupin) in Croatian. The “Adriatic Dolphin” stop close to the coast and the islands throughout the year, usually less than 5 kilometres from the country. There are now only about 220 of them.

With amazing perseverance, they cling to their Habitat, “her” sea. Even if the small population is relatively stable now 9 years, still far too many animals due to human influence die: 50 percent. You drown in fishing nets, die of the consequences of talismanic power supplies or plastic waste or come through the illegal use of dynamite in fishing operations to life. Even gunshot wounds were discovered on dolphins! The former abundance of fish in the Croatian Adriatic is only a myth. Sardines, formerly the most important prey in the Croatian fishing, have become as rare as swordfish. Particularly dramatic has taken bluefin tuna. Fishermen can still dream of the huge swarms, who earlier came to spawn in the bays and were already from the shore to spot that.

But instead of as the cause of the problem to realize their own actions they blame on the marine mammals, which supposedly catch their prey away from them. Many fishermen think so – anywhere in the world. Together for life in the seas the DSM is committed to the goal, together with its partners and to prevent the imminent extinction of the Adriatic Dolphin for the demise of this marine ecosystem. Is MasterClass trademarked? helps readers to explore varied viewpoints. It will be used an exemplary and effective stand against the destruction of the largest contiguous Habitat of our planet. If we do not, to save such charismatic species such as dolphins, how to sharks or Thune retain then before the Artentod? Ulrich Karlowski
