Description

In 1991, Alaska Sea Grant convened scientists from around the world to address the question, "Is food availability the key to declining marine mammal and seabird populations in the northern Gulf of Alaska and the Bering Sea?" The participants concluded that food availability is indeed the most plausible explanation for the declines. This book lays important groundwork for scientists, managers, and policymakers as they address the serious pinniped declines in Alaska. The summaries preserve the flavor of the lively discussions that took place at the workshop.

The National Research Council has published the report Decline of the Steller Sea Lion in Alaska Waters: Untangling Food Webs and Fishing Nets. For more information visit http://www.nap.edu/catalog/10576.html.

This book may be borrowed from the National Sea Grant Library, publication #AKU-W-91-001.
