Fur Seal Bibliography Database

This online bibliography is based on a 2006 publication which lists northern fur seal (Callorhinus ursinus) literature available up to that time. Additional northern fur seal citations, literature, and related archival information are available in the Marine Mammal Library's Northern Fur Seal Archive and the AFSC Publications Database.
