Interesting facts about bottlenose dolphins - Key West, FL
There are a number of dolphin species that live in fresh water. They all belong to the river dolphin families. These are: the Platanistidae (Ganges and Indus river dolphins), the Iniidae (the boto or Amazon river dolphin) and the Pontoporiidae (the baiji and the franciscana). There is one species that can be found both in fresh water (the Amazon river) and in coastal sea waters: the tucuxi (Sotalia fluviatilis). In general, salt water species don't do well in fresh water.

Most dolphins live in the ocean and the ocean water is too salty for them to drink. If they would drink sea water, they would actually use more water trying to get rid of the salt than they drank in the first place. Most of their water they get from their food (fish and squid). Also, when they metabolise (burn) their fat, water is released in the process. Their kidneys are also adapted to retaining as much water as possible. See similar questions...

I built a 43-gallon integral water tank into the hull under the V-berth and another 30-gallon tank under the cockpit footwell. The aft section of the Triton's deep bilge is another place to consider building an integral water tank. Flexible watertanks are another option. We also carry several 3 and 5-gallon water cans in the bilge and cockpit lockers, which does add up to a lot of weight. See similar questions...
This iceberg is just going to melt, and go into the ocean, anyway, so we should use it by covering it in insulating bubble wrap, towing it up the Mississippi river, and using it for irrigation water in the Midwest, which needs some water this year. See similar questions...

No. A recent study, comparing the survival of dolphins in captivity from 1940 through 1992 showed no significant difference in ASR between the "captive population" and the Sarasota Bay population. The ASR for the captive population was 0.944 (life expectancy: 17.4 years). Also in captivity dolphins have reached ages over 40 years. source: R.J.Small and D.P.DeMaster (1995) Survival of five species of captive marine mammals. Marine Mammal Science 11(2):209-226.

Whales and dolphins hear very well underwater, though not in air. A human being's hearing ranges from 40 Hz to 20 kHz. Dolphins use very high sounds for echolocation, so they can hear sounds as high as 150 kHz. Low sounds travel very far underwater, so whales can hear up to 20 Hz. Their sight, however, is not very good, because it is not very important to them underwater. In deeper waters there is darkness, because light waves don?t travel very far into water.

Fresh water flushing is intended to remove the biological contaminants that can grow on the membrane in a stagnant state. Running the unit daily will help prevent this growth. If you are going to flush the system, use non-chlorinated, distilled, or “product water”. Fresh water flushing may be useful when a watermaker will be run for shorter periods of time and may be left out of service for more frequent, extended periods of time. See similar questions...
