Abstract
We examined the hypothesis that dolphins
increase their rate of sound production during
feeding events to recruit new individuals. We
recorded 135.5 min of underwater sounds from
bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) near Isla
del Coco, Costa Rica. Data were collected from
eight feeding groups and three nonfeeding groups.
