NA16NMF4720079

Monitoring the health and population status of ringed seals. The study will continue the collection of data on diet, body condition, age at first reproduction, contaminants, and disease - providing the only long-term biological data available for ringed seals in Alaska. These data will contribute to our understanding of how ringed seals are responding to changes in the environment, the effect those responses may have on the populations, and how long it may take to see population level effects.
