According to the biologist Raúl Díaz Gamboa, Doctor in Marine Sciences from the Autonomous University of Yucatán (UADY), a high percentage of marine mammals that strand off the coasts of the Yucatan peninsula they arrive dead.

The number of strandings varies. The year is divided into three seasons: north, rainy and dry, so most of the strandings occur in the northern season in the first months of the year, the most frequent being February, April, May and June.

The scholar of marine fauna stressed that men, through activities like fishing, cause a high percentage of mortality in these species, while a lower percentage is because the mammals are already of advanced age, that is, they get sick and become disoriented.

He also argued that collisions with boats and predation play a role, as some people use dolphins as bait for sharks.
