Disgrifiad

Detholiad o Morris, L., 1748. Plans of Harbours, Bars, Bays and Roads in St. George's Channel. Mae'r detholiad (tudalen 46) yn disgrifio fel y bu i 113 o ddolffiniaid trwynbwl gael eu golchi i'r lan, ac yna eu defnyddio ym Morfa Bach.

Mae'r detholiad yn darllen fel a ganlyn: “IN this Bay, at Morfa Bach, in the Year 1732, a Shoal of One Hundred and thirteen Bottle-noses were stranded on the Rocks, and left a Prey for the Country, who made great Profit of them, by making Oil of the Blubber.

The largest of these Fish, which was about fifteen Foot long, had a Slug of Lead in his Head, having been wounded by a Gun, but not mortally; which it seems was the Reason of the others hunting him so eagerly, that they ran themselves upon the Rocks. It is remarkable, that when a Porpess or a Bottle-nose is wounded, the rest of the Shoal fall upon him, and devour him.

These Bottle-noses, as well as Porpesses, are seen in great Shoals in this Bay, and all this Coast, hunting after the Herrings, and other small Fish.”
