Tampa Bay, FL (September 17, 2015) – Clearwater Marine Aquarium (CMA) and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) responded to a live stranded dolphin in Cockroach Bay. The call was reported to the FWC by local fishermen, who observed the 260-pound bottlenose dolphin lying on its side during low tide.
The dolphin was nicknamed “Feeny,” after the character from the television series, Boy Meets World. After an overall assessment, biologists determined Feeny required further care.
