The research investigated the use of land-based cameras versus field personnel for marine mammal detection. The study demonstrated that the use of cameras was cost-effective for dolphin monitoring. Secondly, the research investigated associations of bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops aduncus) occurrence in the Fremantle Inner Harbour with noise from vibratory and/or impact pile driving. The number of dolphins detected was significantly reduced by the presence of pile driving, regardless if it was vibratory or impact pile driving.
