Dolphins and beam trawlers

Dolphins off the coasts of Veneto, Italy, forage behind bottom trawlers and midwater pair trawlers, but normally they do not follow beam trawlers. This bottlenose dolphin group crossed a beam trawler but just ignored it, diving past the boat and moving on without changing track.
