As well as being the home to a variety of cetacean species, the Straits of Gibraltar is a recreational fishing hotspot, and fishery impacts are one of the most reported threats worldwide for cetaceans. Previous studies have shown multiple incidences of cetacean stranding and injuries caused by fishing activities in the Gibraltar-Algeciras Bay and BGTW. This is often due to specific tuna fishing techniques commonly used in the Straits of Gibraltar known as “popping”. The purpose of this study is to research the effects of recreational fishing activities on common, striped and bottlenose dolphins and how fishermen behave towards these with regards to the cetacean protocol, as well as improving our understanding on awareness, perceptions and attitudes of the public towards fishing impacts on cetaceans and dolphin injuries caused by harmful fishing techniques. Increasing public awareness on these issues can aid in the conservation of dolphins and the progression towards sustainable fishing in Gibraltar.
