[Extract] The use of telemetry in cetacean research has steadily increased in recent years. The type of tag used, the attachment technique and the lengths of deployment vary greatly, affecting the behaviour and information collected from tagged animals. A new VHF tag was trialed on the inshore bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops aduncus) of Moreton Bay, Australia, using a new attachment technique. Tags were attached to three female bottlenose dolphins in November 1997. The observed short and long term reactions, and minimal dorsal fin damage from the tagging technique are cussed.
