Records of Indo-Pacific Humpback Dolphins (Sousa chinensis, Osbeck, 1765) along the coasts of India and Sri Lanka: An overview

The Indo-Pacific humpback dolphin (Sousa chinensis, Osbeck, 1765) is found in coastal waters throughout the Indian and western Pacific Oceans, but the species has not been studied in detail along the coast of India. Records of stranded specimens, occasional sightings, incidental catches, and museum specimens are reviewed here, and these show that humpback dolphins occur along most Indian coastal areas and in northwest Sri Lanka.
