Roaz [tursiops truncatus],
A unique case in Portugal and rare in the world
The resident population of roazes on the Sado and the adjacent marine coast of Tróia and Arrábida, is a singular case in Portugal and a rare one in the world. It is not yet clear for how long the roazes have been living in Sado. It tis likely that they have been living here for a long time. The oldest record of the sight of two dolphins in the Sado, dates from 1863 by the naturalist José Vicente Barboza du Bocage.
