Abstract

Presence of cetaceans was monitored using a platform of opportunity (whale watching) off north eastern Sardinia, jrom summer 2010 to winter 2011. The monitoring consisted in seventeen surveys covering a total of 1930 km. Six cetacean species have been observed, totalizing 49 sightings. Striped dolphin was the most abundant species in the continental slope area. The waters in the Caprera Canyon appear as a potential hot spot of cetaceans and will be surveyed by dedicated campaigns. Moreover whale-watching activities should be monitored.
