Dolphin deaths puzzle aquarium

Published May 2, 2007


Two recent dolphin deaths at a Fort Walton Beach aquarium have officials looking for answers.

Daphne, a female pantropical spotted dolphin, died at Florida's Gulfarium on April 22. Buster, an Atlantic spotted dolphin, died two days later. Tissue samples from both animals are being analyzed, and the staff has stopped feeding animals fish that both animals were eating until testing can be completed.

Buster came to the Gulfarium after he was stranded near Clearwater Beach 18 months ago.
