1963 Alaska Fur Seal Investigations

June 28, 1963

The fur seal populations in the North Pacific seem to be almost ideal subjects for testing population principles among large mammals. A large part of the population is present at one time on small islands, there is an intensive harvest, and the seals can be marked and measured. Further, there is good communication between biologists of different countries working on the different islands and at sea.
