Hmmm, that's a tough one.  There are really no "markets" for dolphins or
manatees, so no price has been established.  I would suggest that you
contact Sea World.  They might be able to give you an estimate of what it
costs to feed a dolphin or manateee for a year.  I don't think that they
will give you a "price" though, since these animals are not really sold
in the usual sense.  Sorry to be so vague, but that's about the best answer
I can give you.
