Nope.  Nobody really does.  We have some pretty good estimates for some
species in some areas, but we probably don't even know all the species that
are out there yet.  If we could drain the oceans and go around and count all
of the large whales and small whales (a dolphin is just a little whale), the
number would be up in the millions.

Cheers,
Dr. Bob
