New fish to make sushi from, I imagine they will be hunting them for "experimental" reasons soon....

A new species of dolphin has been discovered in the waters of Northern Australia. The Snubfin dolphin is the first new dolphin species to be discovered in 30 years. The snubfin dolphin (Orcaella heinsohni) was named in honour of a university professor, George Heinsohn, who worked at the University that discovered it. It was originally thought to be a Irrawady dolphin until DNA tests revealed it was a new species

I seriously doubt a species could maintain "50" in a non-controlled enviorment.....look at the endangered species in Africa....even they have assisistance to help keep the numbers up.
Humans are the ones screwing it all up.....coastal dolphins, humans definately had thier part in keeping the numbers down..ships, developements, etc...etc...
