On a survey expedition conducted off the coast of central Israel on Saturday, ten dolphins were spotted some eight kilometers from Herzliya. The dolphins belonged to the common species native to the eastern Mediterranean waters.

IMMRAC (the Israel Marine Mammal Research & Assistance Center) carried out the survey with the Si-Gal Yacht Club.
