The section is relatively rich in vertebrate fossil remains including sharks, pinnipeds
and cetaceans (Figs.
There was much commentary on the pinnipeds
as a primary food source of the hunter-explorers.
The data used in this research were collected by the Programme for Conservation and Management of Pinnipeds

First, the Task Force must examine pinniped
population trends and feeding habits, location of pinniped
interactions with the affected salmonids, how and when those interactions occur, and the number of pinnipeds
In late May-early June 1968, Chugunkov (23) conducted a survey of pinniped
haulouts in Karaginsky Gulf off Govena Cape, but his report was not published.
Trampling by pelicans, cormorants, or pinnipeds

summer diet and artisanal fishery catches in Uruguay.
The development of antibodies in naturally and experimentally infected seals suggest that immunity through vaccination is possible, but this would be impractical and cost prohibitive in wild pinniped
The remains of this previously unknown mammal (fossil reconstruction shown) could shed light on the evolution of pinnipeds
, the group that includes seals, sea lions and walruses, researchers report in the April 23 Nature.
The survey provided census data of all pinniped
species, sea otters, and an inventory of marine bird colonies.
