Sightings by marine scientists of dolphins in the north Atlantic's Bay of Biscay have dropped off by 80 percent compared to the same period in 2006, a wildlife conservation group said Wednesday.
The alarming drop in numbers of the Bay's three most common species of dolphin -- the striped, bottlenose and common -- can be attributed to one or both of two causes, Clive Martin, senior wildlife officer for the Biscay Dolphin Research Programme, told AFP.
"We know for a fact that by-catch is killing thousands of dolphins every year," he said, referring to commercial fishing operations in the bay, which is formed by the northern coast of Spain and the eastern French seaboard up to the tip of Brittany.

Are there tuna cans that says they are not dolphin free?
I am all for protecting dolphins, maybe one day there will be so many of them, that we could enjoy them for supper. Maybe someone could come up with a tuna/dolphin combo. Bet that would be delicious!
I guess dolphins are not as smart as we all thought they were.
