Interviews from Sea

In 2006, the Southwest Fisheries Science Center conducted a Stenella Abundance Research (STAR) survey. The primary objective of the STAR cruise was to assess the status of dolphin stocks which have been taken as incidental catch by the yellowfin tuna purse-seine fishery in the Eastern Tropical Pacific and to sample the ecosystem of which they are a part. The STAR project uses an ecosystem approach to management, and consists of a series of at-sea surveys which began in the 1970s and are repeated periodically.
