"Fitzgerald set up shop on a small finger key just off the naval base at Key West, Florida, where the United States had stored its nuclear warheads during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Astounding results came quickly. A dolphin could tell the difference between aluminum and copper, could acoustically "see" a three-inch ball 200 yards off underwater in total darkness, and could be quickly taught to push or pull 110-pound payloads through a hundred miles of open sea. Dolphins also learned toplant magnetic satchels on the hulls of ships, although they often misplaced their dummy explosives underneath the yachts of some very surprised sportsmen. The CIA covered these mistakes by explaining that the dolphins were part of an experiment for the Bureau of Marine Fisheries."
"CIA went ahead with its first scheme. Anchored off Havan like a rumrunner, a disguised CIA yacht released a dolphin from a special stern porthole beaneath the surface. The dolphin swam down an acoustic "path" that was laid by sonar beams sent from the dolphin ship to the harbour. The dolphin helped obtain information about the power plant of a Russian nuclear- powered ship by placing instruments against the hull of the vessel."
