Once hunted to near extinction, the northern fur seal is still listed by the Marine Mammal Protection Act as “depleted” in the Pribilof Islands, but not considered depleted elsewhere. The Pribilof Islands (formerly the Northern Fur Seal Islands; Russian: Острова Прибылова) are a group of four volcanic islands off the coast of mainland Alaska, in the Bering Sea, about miles ( km) north of Unalaska and miles ( km) southwest of Cape Siberian coast is roughly miles ( km) northwest.

About 77 square miles ( km 2) in total. The Pribilof Islands are located in the middle of the Bering Sea, off Alaska's west coast. They are rugged islands, favored by many shorebirds and marine animals, especially the alcid family of birds which includes puffins and auklets.

Federal Government, including the U.S. Congress. [Gentry, ] This book contains very detailed information about the ecology and behavior of Callorhinus ursinus, the northern fur seal. Information provided in this book is based on the long-term study of northern fur seals on several islands in the Bering Sea (e.g., Pribilof Islands, Bogoslof Island, St.

Matthew Island, etc.). The first northern fur seals to populate San Miguel Island migrated from the Pribilof Islands, as seals tagged on the Pribilofs were observed on San Miguel among breeding California sea lions.

The population grew 46 percent in the s and early s but afterward experienced declines due to major El Niño events. Innavigator Gerrassium Pribylov followed fur seals from the Aleutian Islands through the fog to discover St.

[Henry Wood Elliott; United States. Census Office.] -- Results of author's observations of fur seals, sea lions and walrus on Pribilof Islands,and Commander Islands, In Henry Wood Elliott, a young artist-naturalist, travelled as a U.S.

Treasury Department special agent to Alaska’s Pribilof Islands, assigned to study the fur seals and to oversee the fur seal harvest. Existing regulations issued under the FSA authorize Pribilovians to take fur seals on the Pribilof Islands if such taking is for subsistence uses and not accomplished in a wasteful manner (50 CFR ).

For both Islands, the number of fur seals authorized to be harvested annually was established every year from Report On The Seal Islands Of Alaska.

Although playback results support mutual vocal recognition, pups were both more vocally responsive and made more recognition errors (i.e. false alarms). The northern fur seal (Callorhinus ursinus) is a migratory inhabitant of northern seas, breeding in summer on the Pribilof, Komandor (Commander), and other islands.

Prized for its chestnut-coloured underfur, it is a gregarious, vocal animal that feeds on fish and other marine animals. On St. Paul Island, estimated numbers of fur seal pups born in were % less than in (, pups born, SE = 1,) and % less than in (York et al. Northern fur seals on St. Paul Island.

Models of population dynamics and migration were developed and combined with an oil spill simulation model to determine the effects of potential oil spills on the Pribilof Island fur seal (Callorhinus ursinus) the population dynamics model, mortality of pups on land and juveniles up to 2 years of age is density-dependent, while that of older seals is age- and sex-specific and.
