Four bottlenose dolphins
At the start of the survey 2 bottlenose dolphins were seen by the buoy, staying with long dives, thought to be foraging. They moved to the left and right of the buoy, separating and continued to feed for a half -hour. They were then joined by a third dolphin, travelling North toward the fish factory with long dives, thought to be searching for prey. They stayed at the fish factory shore for some time and at the end of the survey a different single dolphin was seen by the buoy.
