Relative encounter rates for bottlenose dolphins in Cres-Lošinj - Map


Relative encounter rates for bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) in Cres-Lošinj Natura 2000 area during 2018, shown on a grid with 5x5 km grid-cells. The relative encounter rate (ER) is calculated as number of dolphin groups encountered per 1 km traveled during visual surveys for bottlenose dolphins.
