Marine mammal (dolphins, whales, seals) research in the Croatian part of the Adriatic Sea started in 1990. All the data collected through this scientific research project has been published, and can be viewed under the “Links --> Marine mammal publications” link. The CroDolphin database is a system for registration of all dolphin sightings in the Adriatic, as this data is important for monitoring and protection of these species. The database is owned by the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine University of Zagreb
Since 1995, all marine mammal species are strictly protected by the Croatian law, which means IT IS FORBIDEN TO DISTURB OR KILL these animals or devastate their habitat.
