Dolphin hunt to be evaluated

The Atlantic white-sided dolphin catch on Sunday 12 September has raised some issues about Atlantic white-sided dolphin catches, e.g. the number of dolphins taken in a single drive and hunting methods in dolphin drives. The situation on 12 September was extraordinary, mainly because the pod was several times larger than is usually the case. The pod outnumbered the second largest pod ever by more than three times, which resulted in severe difficulties once the animals had reached the bay.
