SEA BRIGHT –  The Marine Mammal Stranding Center has responded to the report of yet another dead bottle nose dolphin that washed up on the beach at Sea Bright Beach Club on Wednesday morning.

The dolphin had been dead for some time and had been partially decomposed. MMSC took measurements and photographs and then released the remains to the Sea Bright Department of Public Works for disposal.

The dolphin was past the time frame for a necropsy to determine the cause of death.

This brings the total to more than 50 dolphin that have died along the shores of New Jersey this summer. An ongoing investigation by National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the Marine Mammal Stranding Center is trying to determine the cause.
