Alaska Fisheries Science Center Northern Fur Seal Photo Archive

May 09, 2018

Northern fur seals (Callorhinus ursinus, previously referred to as the Alaska fur seal) are found in the North Pacific and Bering Sea.

The largest portion of the worldwide population returns to the Pribilof Islands, Alaska, in the eastern Bering Sea during their annual breeding season. For several decades, Marine Mammal Laboratory (MML) scientists have been traveling to these islands to photograph and document changes in the population.
