AFSC/NMML/CCEP: Harbor seal demography in Washington; capture, tagging, branding data from 1981 to 2007

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

The National Marine Mammal Laboratories' California Current Ecosystem Program (AFSC/NOAA) in collaboration with Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife captured and sampled Pacific harbor seals (Phoca vitulina) to study the demography of this species in Washington. This database provides capture, recapture, branding and resighting information for harbor seals in Washington from 1981 to 2007. Datasets include: Captures, Recapture, and Resight. Captures and Recapture information includes speno, date, age-class, age qualifier, sex, weight, length, health, tag number, brand number, location for all age classes and axial girth for pups and subadults. It also notes if samples were taken for disease screening (blood and swabs), contaminants (blubber), genetics (skin) and if animals were instrumented and with what type(s) of instrument. Resights information includes speno, date, tag, brand, reproductive information, location.
