Between 1992 and 2001, in coastal waters from New Jersey to North Carolina, 210 bottlenose dolphins were killed by becoming entangled in gill nets used by fishermen. The dolphins become entangled either by accidentally running into the nets or by being caught while eating the fishing catch. Angione reports on a study funded by the North Carolina Fishery Resource Grant program to study whether acoustic alarms can keep the dolphins away from the gill nets.
