Status of the Indus dolphin population (Platanista indi Blyth, 1859) between Sukkur and Guddu barrages in 1979-1980


, : Status of the Indus dolphin population (Platanista indi Blyth, 1859) between Sukkur and Guddu barrages in 1979-1980. Investigations on Cetacea, 13: 245-252

Censuses of P. indi between Sukkur and Guddu barrages from Oct. 1, 1979 to June 30, 1980, are reported. In this protected area, the population consisted of 346 dolphins, of which 55 were newborns. Since the 1st censuses in 1973-1974, a constant and regular increase in the population has been noted. In comparison with Sind, the situation in Punjab is extremely precarious, and it is hoped that the local authorities will introduce conservation measures in order to build up stocks of the presently small remaining population.
