1946 Alaska Fur Seal Herd Studies

The aim of the Canadian visitors was to study the methods employed by the Fish and Wildlife Service in managing the fur seal herd, especially in apportioning to Canada her share of the take. The biologist found it a pleasure to work with these men. He endeavored to give them a background of facts and theories pertaining to fur seal biology and management. At the close of the summer 32 photographs (in duplicate) of sealing operations were supplied out of the biological files to each of the Canadian visitors, supplementing photographic records which they themselves obtained. The Canadians were of daily assistance in the regular program of fur seal research, and not only contributed manual labor but also offered suggestions and ideas which will be useful in planning future research.
