Shekou News recently reported that Chinese white dolphins were spotted in the waters off Chiwan Port near Shekou, Shenzhen on the morning of January 30th, 2019.
A Shenzhen Haijian Fishery Administration Law Enforcement Officer took this video around 10:11 am that morning, while cruising the sea area in the Pearl River Estuary. They spotted at least 10 Chinese white dolphins about 1 nautical mile off Chiwan Port.
Actually, it's become quite common for the white dolphin to visit this time of year. Some speculate that it's due to the improvement of seawater quality.
