Abstract

Between October 2012 and September 2013, a research has been conducted on marine mammal strandings on Turkish western Black Sea coast. In total, 54 stranded cetaceans were found, which included 22 bottlenose dolphins (41%), 19 harbour porpoises (35%), 11 common dolphins (20%), and 4% unidentified individuals. Most strandings were observed in May and June. Bycaught carcases were found especially in April, June and July.  The aim of the study is to collect first-hand data on the monthly stranding rates in order to understand the seasonal variation of stranding cases in a year.

Abstract

Batı Karadeniz Türkiye kıyılarında, 2012 Ekim ayı ile 2013 Eylül ayı süresince karaya vuran deniz memelileri üzerine aylık bir araştırma gerçekleştirilmiştir. 22’si afalina (%41), 19’u mutur (%35), 11’i tırtak (%20) ve %4’ü tanımlanamayan olmak üzere toplam 54 Cetacea bireyi ölü olarak rapor edilmiştir. En yüksek ölüm oranı Mayıs ve Haziran aylarında kaydedilmiştir. Balıkçılık (tesadüfi ağa yakalanma) kaynaklı ölümler (%35) özellikle Nisan, Haziran ve Temmuz aylarında görülmüştür. Çalışmanın amacı bölgedeki aylık karaya vurma oranları hakkında ilk elden veri elde etmek, böylelikle yıl içindeki ölümlerin mevsimsel değişimleri hakkında bilgi sahibi olmaktır.
