Description: This report presents the results of a coastal dolphin monitoring program for the Ichthys LNG Project (the Project) in Darwin Harbour. The monitoring program comprised a capture-recapture study and a spatial habitat use study on humpback, bottlenose and snubfin dolphins in Darwin Harbour and two adjacent sites, Bynoe Harbour to the west and Shoal Bay to the east (the sample area). Data were collected over a period of three and a half years (October 2011 to April 2015) in a systematic and intensive sampling program consisting of eight twice-yearly sampling sessions (dry and wet season samples), each of approximately three weeks duration (primary samples). The capture-recapture study, based on photographic identification of individuals, yielded estimates of abundance, apparent survival and movements by site and over time. The spatial habitat use study, based on group detections, yielded estimates of variation in use of the sample area in terms of locations and over time.
