It’s #FunFactFriday! #DYK that Burmeister’s Porpoises live in the shallow, coastal waters along Eastern, Southern, and Western South America?! Despite living close to shore there is much we don’t know about this species as they are almost impossible to see except in the calmest water. As a result, their population numbers have not been appropriately estimated but we do know they are a frequent casualty of bycatch and in Chile the are directly caught and used as crab bait.
