Resumen

MERAZ, Juan  y  SANCHEZ-DIAZ, Víctor Manuel. Marine mammals along the central coast of Oaxaca. Rev. Mex. Biodiv. [online]. 2008, vol.79, n.1, pp. 143-151. ISSN 2007-8706.

With the aim of documenting the species of marine mammals that occur along the central coast of Oaxaca, a list with the characteristics of the records was elaborated based on observations made throughout 30 surveys from Huatulco Bays to La Escobilla beach between June 1999 and January 2004. Additional records from stranded animals are included, as well observations from the coast. Comments on 8 species are presented, including localities and dates of sightings. Stenella attenuata is the most abundant species. Zipolite-Roca Blanca island was the locality with the highest number of sightings. This records are important to promote conservation due growth of tourism in the area, given that Oaxaca coast is poorly known regarding marine mammals.

Palabras llave : Oaxaca; Tursiops truncatus; Stenella attenuata; S. longirostris; Feresa attenuata; Pseudorca crassidens; Orcinus orca; Megaptera novaeangliae; Zalophus californianus.
