|Data holding centre||Flanders Marine Institute|
|Time period||September 2004|
Northwestern shelf area of the Black Sea. Marine environment sampled - surface of the sea along three tracklines designed within the Exclusive Economic Zone of Ukraine in the northwestern Black Sea
Sightings of cetaceans: harbour porpoises (Phocoena phocoena relicta), common dolphins (Delphinus delphis ponticus) and bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus ponticus). Project: Distribution, abundance and photo-identification of cetaceans in the northwestern shelf waters of the Black Sea (Afalina-2004). The project was implemented by the Brema Laboratory in collaboration with the Severtsov Institute of Ecology and Evolution of the Russian Academy of Science (Moscow) and with financial support from the Utrishsky Dolphinarium Ltd (Moscow). The preparation of survey was ensured in cooperation with L. Mukhametov. The observations of cetaceans have been conducted with assistance from O. Shpak, E. Nazarenko, A. Stanenis, E. Birkun and A.
