In the U.S. there has been quite a lot of controversy over this topic. As
a result there has been a lot of information generated by government
agencies who have reviewed requests to set up human/dolphin interaction

would try the web sites for the national Marine Fisheries Service and the
U.S. Department of agriculture (APHIS- Animal Heal;th and Plant Inspection
Services) for some of the background they used to make their determinations...
