Figure S1. Study area along the central west coast of Florida.
Figure S2. Entanglement scars at the angle of the mouth gape on adult female F153, June 1989 (left) and June 1994 (right), years after the injuries.
Figure S3. FB28 in July 2007, showing monofilament strands stretched between the dorsal fin and right fluke. The raised white lesions are from a chronic fungal disease, lobomycosis, present for many years prior to the injury, and unrelated to the injury. The dorsal fin line was cut by our field team in July, but a small amount of line was still trailing from the right fluke as of May 2008.
Figure S4. Right fluke tip of F222 (A) with monofilament fishing line entanglement and algae fouling after about 1 mo, on 24 August 2005 and (B) without line on 24 April 2006. The line came off the animal without intervention.
Figure S5. Presumed entanglement scars on adult female dolphins. The numbers of calves produced by each female subsequent to the injury is shown in parentheses.
Figure S6. Dolphins of unknown sex with severe dorsal fin damage. The minimum number of days the animals survived with these disfigurements is given in parentheses.
