Across centuries and continents there have been stories of dolphins and humans interacting, but none is as remarkable as the story of cooperation between the bottlenose dolphins and the fishermen of Laguna, Brazil. Using echolocation the dolphins drive shoals of fish into the nets. The fishermen get much better hauls and the dolphins get a meal of escaping fish. Its a technique that has been passed down through the generations. About 20 dolphins currently fish with the humans, in a fishing partnership that dates back nearly 200 years.
