The Government of Tanzania to the fishermen: 'Stop the capture of dolphins, because it upsets the tourists'
The dolphin hunting has become a common practice in the regions of Dar es Salaam and Tanga.
The dolphin meat is used as bait for sharks.
Tourists have been witnesses of the capture of dolphins in the Tanga Coelacanth Marine Park from parts of fishermen.
Tourism is big business in Tanzania, thanks to its rich fauna.
If the tourists are watching "Flipper" killed with dynamite thrown into the water, carried in a boat, cut into pieces used as bait for sharks they will surely have ruined the own holiday and they make a very negative publicity for Tanzania at their return to their native country.
The Dolphins have been a protected species in Tanzania since 2009 but is not clear how this is known among the fishermen, however, the need for sustenance for their families outweighs any concern for the preservation or the health of an environment which the fishermen are little aware of the naturalness.
