The population statistics of three different sea mammals in the Gormez straits between 2006 and 2018 is portrayed in the given bar graph.

Overall, it is clear that the population of all these aquatic animals increased between the years, despite some mild fluctuations in between.

As seen in the chart, in 2006, the most populated sea animal in the Straits was seals. From this peak number of 43, its population fell surprisingly to almost 25 in 2010. However, between these two years, the population of whales and dolphins saw a slight climb. When the former’s number grew from 23 to 26, the latter’s number increased from 17 to 22.

When both the seal and dolphin population swelled consistently from 2010 to 2018, the growth of the whale population was erratic between the years. During this eight-year period, the number of seals went up from 25 to 44; the volume of dolphins grew more sharply to around 52. In 2018, the total number of whales in the Gormez Straits was 28, which were just 6 more than in 2014.
