The cooperation is helpful to both parties, researchers said. The two wouldn't survive without each other.

Oh, I'm pretty sure the dolphins would survive just fine.

I just came to say it'd be nice to know how the dolphins couldnt survive.

Lies. No animal species can possibly survive without the efforts of the far superior human species.

Um, yeah, this is how they spot yellowfin tuna schools, and why dolphins end up in your tuna cans.

I wonder what the dolphins get out of this? The only thing I can think of is the fisherman can catch more fish with the nets and end up sharing more with the dolphins than the dolphins could easily catch themselves....so lazy dolphins lol

Stupid article doesn't say. It could be the dolphins function like hunting dogs that locate and flush prey and then get given food rewards. However in comments to the article someone recalls an episode on PBS which explained the benefit - the dolphins would drive the fish into the human traps and those fish trying to escape from the traps were really easy to catch, almost jumping right into the dolphins' mouths.

It's actually not a bad idea for me to click on a Yahoo link once every several months.

Last year I had to jump through all kinds of hoops at the start of Fantasy Football season because my account had been deactivated or whatever due to inactivity.

I'm pretty sure I saw this explored in one of those Discovery channel series, most likely Human Planet. It was no Planet Earth, but it did show some fascinating things.

I recall dolphins throwing dead fish at tourists in boats in Florida. Dolphins are nature's dicks.
