The harbour porpoise (Phocoena phocoena) is one of six species of is one of the smallest marine its name implies, it stays close to coastal areas or river estuaries, and as such, is the most familiar porpoise to whale porpoise often ventures up rivers, and has been seen hundreds of miles from the : Mammalia.

Harbor porpoises are distributed throughout the coastal waters of the North Pacific, the North Atlantic, and the Black Sea ().The porpoises in each of these ocean basins are reproductively isolated, resulting in division of the species into subspecies: Phocoena phocoena phocoena in the Atlantic Ocean and Phocoena phocoena vomerina in the Pacific by: The Harbour porpoise is equipped with echolocation, which enables it to navigate the seas and search for food, in complete darkness sometimes.

The abundant harbour porpoise is the best-known and most popular species of porpoise, and they are often found swimming in coastal waters and near the harbor. Phocoena phocoena, the harbour porpoise is a stocky, rotund animal with a broad-based, low, triangular dorsal fin and small, oval pectoral flippers.

At this time, no data are available to reflect stock structure for. However, little is known about acoustic communication in the toothed whale species that only produce narrow band high frequency (NBHF) clicks, such as the harbour porpoise Phocoena phocoena.

Abstract. Sound plays an important role for toothed whales in foraging and communication. However, little is known about acoustic communication in the toothed whale species that only produce narrow band high frequency (NBHF) clicks, such as the harbour porpoise Phocoena phocoena.

In total, individual dives were recorded over h. During satellite tagging of harbour porpoises (Phocoena phocoena), heart rate, respiration rate and cortisol value were measured to evaluate stress effects during handling and ation rates were obtained using video recordings, heart rates were recorded and serum cortisol levels were analysed from blood by: The Harbour Porpoise is the smallest and most abundant cetacean around Iceland.

They are usually shy but occasionally they come and play around the boats. They can be relatively hard to spot from a distance due to their size and their abundance depends entirely on the food availability of our shores since they are opportunistic feeders. They tend to be more common in summer.
