Zulu, Levante & Minke Luxury Fishing Charters - Port Douglas QLD

A great picture of a juvenile dolphin. This fish is only 30 days old and will weight 38 pounds by his 7 month. Eighty-seven percent of the dolphin will die in their first year of life. This is a normal life span for a dolphin. A 50 pound dolphin is one year old and 13 percent will make it thru second year. Only 3 percent will make it to the third year a 70 pound plus dolphin. Information source Captain Jim Sharpe,s book "Dolphin: the Perfect Gamefish" available at seaboots.com or 800-238-1746. Thats life in the fast lane ... See MoreSee Less
