Basking Sharks, Dolphins , Porpoises and Whales: A - 25/09/2006
Basking Sharks, Dolphins , Porpoises and Whales:|
The University Marine Biological Station Millport is undertaking an in depth study of basking sharks in the Firth of Clyde and adjacent areas in SW Scotland. The aim
of the project is to get a better estimate of the number of Basking Sharks using the
area and to gain a more complete knowledge of their annual movement and
behaviour. To do this, we need your help by reporting
any sighting of Basking Sharks. Information on visual sightings of sharks will be invaluable in helping us assess the status of our Basking Shark population. We would also welcome sightings of Dolphins, Porpoises and Whales within the same area.
IF you see a basking shark, dolphin, porpoise or whale, please note it down.
