The Salvamar Menkalinan rescue boat was called to move the corpse of a dead dolphin yesterday morning, found near the coast of Arguineguín, in the municipality of Mogán, Gran Canaria.

The dead aquatic mammal was spotted floating in the sea by a fishing boat, who alerted Maritime Rescue as to it's whereabouts, concerned that a boat could easily collide with it's remains possibly causing an accident.

Maritime Rescue went straight out and recovered the dead cetacean, and took it to the Arguineguín fishing pier, where it has been taken care of by Fauna Marina personnel, who will investigate the cause of death.
