Note: Bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus truncatus) in human care in the USA and mainland Europe primarily originate from coastal (inshore) animals from western North Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico stocks. Due to potential variations in the life history and environment of stocks from different areas of the world, information and studies in this document pertain only to bottlenose dolphins in those regions.
