At Associació Cetàcea we have been conducting research studies on cetaceans off the coast of Garraf since 2013. At the beginning of 2014 we started the Photo-Identification Project: Whales and Dolphins along the Catalan Coast. Our goal is to increase our knowledge about the species that inhabit the area basing the study on photo-identification of marine animals. In the map below you can see the different cetacean sightings from 2014.
LAST UPDATE: April 3rd 2021.
Since 2013 we have spotted 7 different species of cetaceans, the striped dolphin (Stenella coeruleoalba), the bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus), the fin whale (Balaenoptera physalus), the Risso’s dolphin (Grampus griseus), the sperm whale (Physeter macrocephalus), the short-beaked common dolphin (Delphinus delphis) and the Cuvier’s beaked whale (Ziphius cavirostris). You can see the distribution of the sightings on the maps below.
