Entanglement in fishing gear
Possible trauma from ocean noise, may be sensitive to underwater sounds and anthropogenic noise
strandings of this species in the Bahamas, Caribbean Sea, Canary Islands, Gulf of California and Mediterranean Sea have been associated with active sonar and seismic activities
Anthropogenic noise levels in the world's oceans are an increasing habitat concern, particularly for deep-diving cetaceans like Cuvier's beaked whales that use sound to feed, communicate, and navigate in the ocean.
Have been taken in fisheries in the Caribbean, Chile, Indonesia, Peru and Taiwan.
Have been incidentally taken in Japanese whaling operations targeting Baird's beaked whales
