Description

Research recommendations in this book clarify the information needed to understand the Southwestern Alaska sea otter decline. The Southwestern Alaska stock, which has the majority of the world's sea otters, showed signs of demise by the early 1990s from unknown causes.

Participants at the April 2004 Alaska Sea Otter Research Workshop developed recommendations that can quickly advance research efforts, through insights into population dynamics and life history of sea otters worldwide. The book also summarizes sea otter research programs, the status of sea otter populations, and research methods. Participating scientists represent, among others, Alaska, California, Hawaii, Texas, Washington, and Far-Eastern Russia.

This book also may be borrowed from the National Sea Grant Library, publication #AKU-W-04-001.
