Still, a man isn't like a whale or a porpoise, that takes the, air in his nostrils, and never knows whether it is a southeaster or a northwester that he feeds upon.
Но человек не кит и не дельфин, которые хватают ноздрями воздух и не знают, зюйд-ост это или норд-ост.

The harbour porpoise is a coastal marine mammal that tends to stay within a few kilometres from shore, so no impact on harbour porpoises is predicted.
Обыкновенная морская свинья - прибрежный вид - старается держаться в пределах нескольких километров от берега, так что воздействие на нее, как прогнозируется, будет отсутствовать.

Then far, away over the blue he caught sight of three long, dark shapes like hurrying fish that drove one after the other, as porpoises follow one another in the water.
А потом в синей дали он увидел три темных продолговатых, похожих на рыб силуэта — словно гнались друг за другом резвившиеся дельфины.

Then the porpoises lined up and sped out to sea, leaving a flaming path behind them that flickered and glowed, and then died slowly, like a glowing branch laid across the bay.
Вскоре и дельфины потянулись цепочкой в открытое море, оставляя за собой огненную дорожку, которая искрилась и сверкала и наконец медленно гасла, будто тлеющая ветка, брошенная в залив.

Strangely enough, we would never have seen the porpoises, the fireflies, and the phosphorescence acting together if it had not been for Mother's bathing-costume.
Но все‑таки нам бы никогда не удалось увидеть одновременно и дельфинов, и светлячков, и фосфоресценцию, если бы не мамин купальный костюм.
