Gulf of Kutch Jamnagar News Gujarat India

Gulf of Kutch favorite dolphin playground.

There is a sizeable population of dolphins along the Gujarat coast, especially in the Gulf of Kutch.

Plenty of dolphins can be seen in the area off Jamnagar City the Marine National Park (MNP).

Though the Center has just declared dolphin a national aquatic animal in order to save the species, fishermen in Gujarat have been setting dolphins free even at the cost of sacrificing their nets.

The MNP has actually drawn a plan to enable tourists to take a closer look at dolphins in the sea.

Prakash Sata, divisional forest officer at the MNP, said a jetty will be built at Bhadu near Positra from where small boats will take tourists closer to the dolphins which inhabit the area.

HS Singh, chief conservator of forest, who has presented a paper on the dolphins, says: "The numbers of dolphins in the gulf have not been studied.

But we do find common dolphins, bottle-nosed dolphins and Pacific hump-back dolphins in this area."
