1962 Alaska Pelagic Fur Seal Investigations

June 28, 1962

In the 4 years, 1958-61, pelagic research on fur seals as specified by the Interim Convention on Conservation of North Pacific Fur Seals carried U.S. Investigators into the entire north-to-south range of the northern fur seal in the eastern Pacific. Collecting efforts in these years were concentrated primarily where seals were abundant.
