Abstract



The behaviour of the Spinner Dolphin Stenella longirostris was studied at Sha\'ab Samadai, Marsa Alam, Red Sea. The data were collected from October 2005 until September 2006 using surface observations. Four objectives were studied: arrival and departure time of dolphins, distribution of dolphin movements within the lagoon, aerial behaviours and human effects on dolphin behaviour.
