    • More than 300,000 whales, dolphins and porpoises - or cetaceans - are estimated to die every year from entanglement in fishing gear, more than from any other cause.
    • Fishery managers believe that a few low-decibel pings in the ocean, usually inaudible 300 meters away, have to be better than killing porpoises in Maine or sperm whales in California.
    • The environmental group claims the deaths off the British coastline are among a worldwide toll of 300,000 cetaceans (dolphins, porpoises and whales) worldwide every year.
    • Also, looking back over a decade of stranding records from Britain, the researchers found seven dolphins and porpoises and one beaked whale with puzzling gas bubbles.
    • Dolphins and porpoises are examples of odontocetes, as are belugas, narwhals, killer whales, sperm whales, and beaked whales.
    • Dolphins, porpoises and even minke whales have all been sighted, while the grey seal colony is always entertaining.
    • Pingers (acoustic deterrents that warn or scare dolphins, porpoises, and whales away from fishing nets) are mandatory in other areas.
    • The biodiversity report lists 25 species at risk, including otters, brown hares, red squirrels, pipistrelle bats, porpoises, six varieties of dolphin and 13 types of whale.
    • You may spot seals and otters and, if you're lucky, porpoises and killer whales on their way from the Atlantic and to the Irish Sea.
    • The shores are playgrounds for otters and seals while porpoises and killer whales sweep past on their way between the Atlantic and the Irish Sea.
    • Cetaceans also are hunted and eaten, the most common being porpoises, killer whales, and pilot whales.
    • The crows nest has become an ideal lookout post for sighting dolphins, whales, porpoises, seabirds and turtles.
    • The Cetacea are, of course, best known from their modern representatives, the porpoises, dolphins and whales.
    • Irish waters are at least seasonally home to an impressive 24 species, ranging from the tiny harbour porpoise to the giant blue whales.
    • More and more, researchers are finding out just how important sound is to cetaceans like dolphins, porpoises and whales.
    • There are over 80 species of cetaceans, marine mammals such as porpoises, dolphins and whales, but the Norwegians have traditionally hunted minke.
    • Whales, dolphins, porpoises, seals and sea lions receive protection in the U.S. under the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972.
    • While the cod, pollack and haddock may have all but disappeared, you stand a good chance of spotting porpoises, minke whales and even the odd beluga.
    • The first day we saw nothing but a harbour porpoise feeding in the current washing around Black Head, close to the end of the Lizard Peninsula.
    • Complete isolation and frequent sightings of porpoises and minke whales set the scene.
