CLEARWATER, Fla. (WWSB) - Clearwater Marine Aquarium has announced the death of its oldest dolphin, Hemingway.

Hemingway was brought to Clearwater Marine Aquarium in 2020. A year prior, he had been found stranded off Fiesta Key. Hemingway was suffering from hearing loss and other health issues that classified him as non releasable.

Animal Care staff noticed a change in Hemingway’s behavior late last week and began treating him for a suspected gastrointestinal condition.

Hemingway lived at the Dolphin Complex with fellow rescues Apollo and Nicholas. He passed away Monday at 1:30 a.m. surrounded by his trainers and veterinary staff.

He was 37 years old.
