dc.description.abstractThere are only three cetacean species that have been previously documented to use bubbles to corral fish: humpback whale (Megaptera novaeangliae), killer whale (Orcinus orca), and Atlantic spotted dolphin (Stenella frontalis). We observed a lone bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) blowing bubbles while feeding on a school of striped mullet (Mugil cephalus). This account is the first to date of the use of bubbles by bottlenose dolphins for prey containmenten_US
