Seals and Sea-Lions
Seals, sea-lions and walruses belong to the order Pinnipedia. There are 33 species of pinnipeds, divided into three families. The family Otariidae contains 14 species, including the fur seals and sea-lions. Otariid species are typically more upright when on land, and can move with reasonable agility. The family Phocidae is made up of the 'true seals' and contains 18 species. Unable to 'walk' on land like the otariids, they move in a lunging caterpillar-like motion. The third family, Odobenidae, contains only the walrus.
Seals in Australian Waters
There are ten pinniped species regularly recorded in Australian waters.

Predators and Diet

Physical Appearance
The pictures seen here are Stellar sea lion pups, but when they reach their adult size these animal are the largest of all the eared seals. The average length of an adult male is 300 cm, whereas a female is 250 cm. The big difference between males and females are their weights. A full grown male can weigh up to 1000 kg and a female is only 270 kg! Adult fur is light to reddish brown in colour and adult males develop thick neck muscles that are covered by long coarse hair, that looks like a mane, hence the name "sea lion". Distribution
Stellar sea lions live in the Pacific northwest and can be found from San Miguel Island in southern California, to Alaska, to the Sea of Okhotsk, near Japan. Along the California coast north to Vancouver Island, British Columbia, there lives a another species of sea lion, the California sea lion ( Zalophus californianus ). The California sea lion is often mistaken by an untrained eye for the Stellar sea lion.

A: There are so many different seal species in the world that its difficult to say what they can eat in a day. The harbour seals at the Vancouver aquarium eat an average of 8.1 percent of their body weight each day. That's a lot of food! If a 100 pound human had to eat eight percent of his weight each day it would mean consuming about eight pounds of food. The average lifespan of all pinnipeds (seals, sea lions and walruses) is about 15-25 years.

Sea lions
Northern or Steller sea lion
Eumetopias jubatus (Schreber, 1776)
Occasionally this species is referred to as Eumetopias jubata . The Northern Sea Lion is also commonly named the Steller Sea Lion.
The Northern sea lion is the largest of the sea lions. Males may be upto 310 cm in length and weigh around 900 kg. Females are much smaller, 200 cm (291 according to Loughlin and Nelson, 1987) and they can weigh upto 300 kg. The Northern sea lion is usually yellowish brown in color. The males have distinctive manes. Pups are dark brown during the first year.
The diet consists of mainly non-commercial fish species and cephalopods. Also the commercially exploited pollock can be part of the diet (Loughlin and Nelson, 1987).
Population dynamics and life history
The age at maturity is for females 4-5 years, for males 7-9 years (9-13 years according to Loughlin and Nelson, 1987). The pregnancy rate is 85-86%. Gestation lasts one year, including a delay of implantation of about 3 months. Longevity is estimated to be about 23 years.Pup mortality ranges, depending on the situation in the rookery, from 10 to 100%. York (1994) estimated the survival rates for animals of age 3-4 at 0.93, with slowly declining survival rates at increased age (0.841 at age 12-13). York estimated the fecundity (average number of female offspring produced by each female) of animal of 6 years and older at 0.315 for the Alaskan population.

The sea lions camped out in PIER 39's West Marina have been endearingly coined, "Sea Lebrities." These California sea lions "hauled out" on PIER 39's K-Dock shortly after the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. The boisterous barking pinnipeds started arriving in droves, taking over the docks in January 1990. At first they numbered from 10-50, but due to a plentiful supply of herring, the available dock space and a protected environment, the population grew to more than 300 within a couple of months. Each winter the population grows as high as 900. During the summer months the sea lions tend to migrate to the Channel Islands, but now a small group chooses to stay at PIER 39's K-Dock. Year-round, weather permitting, free educational talks, provided by Marine Mammal Center volunteers, are available on weekends from 11 am to 5 pm.

33. Monterey Bay Seals
Barking California sea lions are a constant in fall and winter in Monterey, sea lions are easily identified by their external ears (seals show no ears)
MONTEREY BAY PINNIPEDS and OTTER Barking California Sea Lions are a constant in fall and winter in Monterey, and I hear them from my backyard hot tub when conditions are right. Harbor seals are common attractions along the rocky shore and in Elkhorn Slough. The other pinnipeds, though, require either trips to breeding colonies just north or south of Monterey County (Northern Elephant Seal and Steller's Sea Lion) or luck on offshore boat trips. I've never seen a Northern Fur Seal from shore. Short photo introductions to the various species follow.
All photos are from Monterey Bay or nearby Sea Otter Enhydra lutris nearly went extinct due to hunting for their fur in former centuries, but today they are a star attraction along the shores of Monterey Bay. They are easily seen in Elkhorn Slough, around the Monterey Peninsula, and down the Big Sur coast. They are popular attractions at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Local populations have been studied intensively, and much information is available on line. There is a local Sea Otter society with a gift shop on Cannery Row. Photo above California Sea Lion Zalophus californianus is a common visitor in fall and winter from Channel Island breeding populations, and in some years a few remain through spring and summer. Sea lions are easily identified by their external ears (seals show no ears) and by their raucous barking. When present, they commandeer unused boats in the harbor, buoys, and the Coast Guard jetty. They can be very aggressive off Fisherman's Wharf. Our visiting population is almost entirely composed of males; females don't venture this far north.

Scientists investigate why Steller sea lions are eating a fish diet that cannot sustain them in the cold north Pacific.

By Jonathan Amos
BBC News Online science staff
The sea lions used to number hundreds of thousands Scientists believe they are closer to understanding why the populations of Steller sea lions and other mammals have collapsed in the north Pacific.
The sea lions have seen their numbers fall by more than 80% since the 1970s. The North Pacific Universities Marine Mammal Consortium says the animals appear to have switched to eating fish with a very much lower fat content. This means the sea lions cannot build up sufficient blubber to survive and breed in their cold environment. "In 1977, there was knife-edge change - it cut right through the ecosystem," the consortium's director Dr Andrew Trites told the BBC. "It not only affected the seals and sea lions, it also affected the shrimps, the crabs, the salmon - a whole suite of species flipped overnight in their abundances." Steller sea lions are found from Japan through Russia, Alaska, British Columbia and down to California.

By Verity Murphy
BBC News Online
With the military build-up in the Persian Gulf showing no sign of abating the US Navy has unveiled its secret weapon - a crack troupe of sea lions. The sea lions can carry out repeated dives to great depths without tiring The specially trained mammals have been deployed to the region to protect US and British warships against attacks from underwater saboteurs and mines. These whiskered warriors are even capable of clamping a floating marker to the legs of an intruder, alerting troops to his position, who can then move in and haul the attacker out of the water. The British naval commander in the Gulf, Rear Admiral David Snelson, warned on Monday that possible al-Qaeda attacks on warships in the region was the biggest security threat facing his forces as they prepare for a possible war with Iraq. Three years ago 17 US servicemen were killed when the USS Cole was attacked in the Yemeni port of Aden by al-Qaeda operatives using an inflatable boat packed with explosives.

Steller Watch- A Year in the Life of a Sea Lion

A small but intrepid group of scientists is spending a year observing Steller sea lions on a small remote Island in Alaska. This update on their study and experiences is just in. See 16 August 2005 If you think choosing a healthy diet for yourself is difficult, imagine how challenging it is for scientists to figure out what kind of fish are best for Steller sea lions. Scientists are trying to determine whether a change in fish stocks in Western Alaska may have put the entire Steller sea lion population in jeopardy. A recent study on Steller sea lions at the Vancouver Aquarium explored the physiological effects of high-lipid (fatty) and low-lipid (lean) diets on sea lion health, reproduction, and survival.

Steller sea lion research
Open water project
Steller sea lions dive into new research The Open Water Project is conducted in collaboration with the Vancouver Aquarium Marine Science Centre , and aims to provide information on the energetic cost of foraging by Steller sea lions. This is integral to assessing the impact of change in prey types or distributions on wild sea lions, and ultimately discovering what might be done to help the declining wild populations recover.
The first trained sea lion trial is designed to evaluate one of the key costs of foraging; the cost of diving to depth. Each day, the sea lions accompany researchers to a trial area, where they carry out training and diving experiments. On arrival, the sea lions spend an initial period breathing in a respirometry dome at the water surface. They then dive to an underwater target light at a pre-specified depth and remain focused there until researchers turn the light off, their cue to return to the respiratory dome. The levels of oxygen that the sea lions breathe in the chamber are then measured to estimate the energetic cost of diving.
