Five bottlenose dolphins and one Atlantic grey seal
At the start of the survey, one dolphin was seen foraging near the cardinal buoy. More dolphins then presumably joined this individual to forage near the cardinal buoy. Half way through the survey the dolphins appeared to travel off. At the very end of the survey a grey seal was spotted near the fish factory.

Four bottlenose dolphins
For the first 45 minutes of the survey, three dolphins could be seen travelling throughout the harbour, showing active behavior such as tail slapping. The group then appeared to either split up or replaced by different animals, as one animal could be seen foraging by the cardinal buoy and two animals were near the fish factory. A mother and calf group could be seen splashing around near the fish factory and later near the harbour wall. A curious female grey seal was seen at several points later in the survey.
