Dolphin presence was significantly affected by month, latitude and depth. Group size varied significantly by month, season, depth, sea surface temperature (SST) and latitude, and was highly skewed towards smaller groups made up of < 50 animals. Larger aggregations were most frequent during the austral winter when nutrient upwelling typically leads to increased prey availability within the region. Over 70% of groups encountered contained immature animals and 25% of groups included neonates. Calves were observed throughout the year but were most prevalent in the austral summer months of December and January. Month, season, depth, and SST significantly affected group composition. Common dolphins were observed in association with four cetacean and eight avian species, most frequently with the Australasian gannet (Morus serrator) and the Bryde's whale (Balaenoptera brydei). The distribution of dolphin-only groups differed significantly from that of dolphin-whale groups, with mono-specific groups found on average in waters that were 3.6 in shallower and 3.1°C warmer. The year-round occurrence and social organisation of common dolphins in Hauraki Gulf waters suggest this region is important both as a calving and nursery ground.]]> Thu 13 Jun 2019 15:55:40 AEST ]]> Riding the wave: History, definitions, and a proposed typology of surf-riding tourism http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:26864 Thu 13 Jun 2019 15:55:39 AEST ]]> Seasonal and age/size-related occurrence of a barnacle (Xenobalanus globicipitis) on bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:26487 Thu 13 Jun 2019 15:55:37 AEST ]]> The status of common dolphins (Delphinus delphis) within New Zealand waters http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:27157 Thu 13 Jun 2019 15:55:36 AEST ]]> Behavior of free-ranging common dolphins (Delphinus sp.) in the Hauraki Gulf, New Zealand http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:26488 Thu 13 Jun 2019 15:55:35 AEST ]]> A field engages: Papers from the 6th international coastal and marine tourism congress http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:26862 Thu 13 Jun 2019 15:55:33 AEST ]]> Tourism affects the behavioural budget of the common dolphin Delphinus sp. in the Hauraki Gulf, New Zealand http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:26485 Thu 13 Jun 2019 15:55:32 AEST ]]> Spot X: Surfing, remote destinations and sustaining wilderness surfing experiences http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:28127 Thu 13 Jun 2019 15:55:30 AEST ]]> The use of auditory stimulants during swim encounters with Hector's dolphins (Cephalorhynchus hectori hectori) in Akaroa Harbour, New Zealand http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:26486 Thu 13 Jun 2019 15:55:29 AEST ]]> A conceptual model of tourist-wildlife interaction: The case for education as a management strategy http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:26470 Thu 13 Jun 2019 15:55:28 AEST ]]> Creating Effective Interpretation for Managing Interaction Between Tourists and Wildlife http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:26471 Thu 13 Jun 2019 15:55:26 AEST ]]> Impacts of Ecotourism on Short-Beaked Common Dolphins (Delphinus delphis) in Mercury Bay, New Zealand http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:28177 50 individuals) and/or the number of swimmers in the water was small (< 5).
