Vertebrate necropsy and sample recovery services to the Marine Institute

This collaboration between GMIT and the Irish Whale and Dolphin Group (lead partners) and Cork Regional Veterinary Laboratory aimed to establish the cause of death of stranded dolphins and porpoises and recover tissues for research purposes. The work was funded through a contract by the Marine Institute between 2017-2019.
