Hundreds of sea otters have succumbed to the parasites Toxoplasma gondii and Sacrocystis neurona, which are typically bred in cats and opossums. In Alaska, precipitous population declines occurred in the Aleutian Islands beginning in the late s The subpopulation in the Kodiak archipelago and lower Cook Inlet appeared stable or increasing during the same period that population filettype were documented in the Aleutian Islands and Alaska Peninsula Kodiak and lower Cook Inlet are part of the Southwest population stockhowever, this endangered species sea otters filetype has not been surveyed since All subspecies look very similar, the only difference is endangered species sea otters filetype size as Northern sea otters tend to be larger than California sea otters.
The harvest of Sea Otters is monitored by the U.
However, the Queen Charlotte, Canada and San Benito Island, Mexico remnant Sea Otter subpopulations have presumably died out and likely did not contribute endangered species sea otters filetype the recolonization of the species following near extirpation Kenyon The endangered species sea otters filetype subpopulations were endangdred and widely dispersed, as a result, this species has low genetic diversity Ralls et al.
Although they are most strongly associated with rocky substrates, sea otters can also live in areas where the sea floor consists primarily of mud, sand, or silt.
Fish and Wildlife Service Service is the federal agency responsible for their conservation and management. Sea Otters become specids when oiled because oiled Sea Otter fur loses its insulative property and Sea Otters have no blubber fileytpe, oil can be ingested while grooming, leading to gastrointestinal disorders, other ailments and death and endangered species sea otters filetype components of oil inhaled filftype Sea Otters can cause lung damage.
The probable cause of the decline was increased predation by Killer Whales Orcinus orca Estes et al. Conflict with Humans Direct conflict with humans, such as shootings and entrapment in fishing traps and nets pose a major threat to sea otter populations. Females normally give birth to a single pup that weighs 1.
In Russia, the most recent population estimates are from at which time reported counts were about 19, are in the Kurils, 3, on the Kamchatka Peninsula and another 5, on the Commander Islands. Sea Otter pelts are also being sold in Russia, with at least skins being sold on the black market in Moscow in summer There have been increased shark related mortalities in the southern part of endangered species sea otters filetype range and mortality from shark bites is the primary known cause of mortality at this time.
Sea urchins, abalones and rock crabs are the principal prey of Sea Otters in newly reoccupied habitats of central California Vandevere whereas clams and crab will make up the diet in soft-sediment habitats Kvitek et al. A Native American tribe, the Ainu, portrayed the sea otter as a messenger between humans and the creator. In the early s, the worldwide population was estimated to be betweenKenyon andindividuals Johnsonoccurring along the North Pacific from northern Japan to endangered species sea otters filetype central Baja Peninsula in Mexico.
Click here to open the map viewer and explore range. Endangdred otters live almost exclusively in the Northern Pacific kelp endangered species sea otters endangered species sea otters filetype, relatively close to the coastline.
What is the title of your report? They established a healthy population, estimated to be 4, as ofand their range is now from Tofino to Cape Scott. Their endangered species sea otters filetype association is with rocky substrates supporting kelp beds, but they also frequent soft-sediment areas where kelp is absent Riedman and EstesDeMaster et al. Population estimates made between and give a worldwide total of approximatelySea Endangered species sea otters filetype.
Under these circumstances, sea otters may find it difficult to meet their high metabolic needs, leading to malnutrition or starvation. They are found most often in areas with protection from the most severe ocean winds, such as rocky coastlines, thick kelp forests, and barrier reefs. Past history so dramatically illustrated the vulnerability of Sea Otters to over-harvest.

Overall the population in this region is stable or slightly increasing. Kelp canopy is an important habitat component, used for foraging and endangered species sea otters filetype Riedman and Estes In Alaska the Marine Mammal Protection Act allows for coastal Native people to hunt northern Sea Otters for subsistence endangered species sea otters filetype personal uses and barter or trade of unaltered pelts with other Native peopleand for creating and selling authentic handicrafts or clothing provided the taking was not wasteful; there is no other legal harvest of Sea Otters.
Recent studies have found infectious disease to be an important mortality factor in California Sea Otter populations. Serious tooth wear in older sea otters may also contribute to mortality Riedman and Estes Typically, female Sea Otter home ranges are about 1. There are heightened conflicts with commercial dive fisheries in this region.
Kreuder Et Al Some IE browsers, especially on shared computers, have pre-configured settings that prevent Gambassa from filettpe properly.
Enhydra lutris (Sea Otter)
In general, the fur areas were exhausted in the order they were opened. Only adult male Sea Otters establish territories.
Females move freely between and among male territories. This species is considered to be Endangered under criterion A2abe based on past large-scale population declines. An specie physical characteristic of sea otters are their built endangered species sea otters filetype pockets under their forearms endanyered serve as a place to stash prey while diving so they can maximize their catch.

Population range expansion is expected to continue in this region, however, population growth rates have been lower than predicted for the region. The fish species eaten were endangered species sea otters filetype bottom dwelling and sedentary or sluggish forms, such as the Red Irish Lord and Globefish Estes However, Sea Otter trade still exists.
Kamchatka and the Aleutians were depleted byKodiak bySitka to Nootka Sound byand California by Elected Alaska leadership explored placing a bounty on sea otter pelts to help reduce the Sea Otter endangered species sea otters filetype in order to protect shell fisheries. When Sea Otters were afforded protection by the International Fur Seal Treaty inprobably fewer sew 2, animals remained in 13 remnant colonies Kenyon
