Dear John,
The bridled dolphin or spotted dolphin has suffered a lot from incidental
catches in nets. I could not find any population estimated of the species
worldwide but it is estimated that there may be 2-4 million bridled dolphins
still left in the tropical Pacific. If you would like more information about
the species, I would refer you Dr. W.F. Perrin who published a fair amount
on the subject.
