Cetacean Strandings in the US Pacific Northwest 2000–2019 Reveal Potential Linkages to Oceanographic Variability
Studying patterns in marine mammal stranding cases can provide insight into changes in population health, abundance, and distribution. Cetaceans along the United States West coast strand for a wide
Spatio-temporal analysis identifies marine mammal stranding hotspots along the Indian coastline
Marine mammal strandings provide vital information on species’ life histories, population health and status of marine ecosystems. Opportunistic reporting of strandings also serve as a powerful
Antibiotic Resistance of Bacteria in Two Marine Mammal Species, Harbor Seals and Harbor Porpoises, Living in an Urban Marine Ecosystem, the Salish Sea, Washington State, USA
Overall isolate resistance was significantly greater in porpoises than seals for several individual antibiotics, suggesting seal and porpoise exposure to anthropogenic pollution.
Breaking down “harassment” to characterize trends in human interaction cases in Maine's pinnipeds
Recent marine mammal recovery and growth of human populations in coastal areas has led to increased human harassment of protected pinniped populations. Yet, current monitoring approaches lack the
Spatio-temporal analysis identifies hotspots of marine mammal strandings along the Indian coastline: implications for developing a National Marine Mammal Stranding Response and Management policy
Critical areas to be prioritized for monitoring marine mammal strandings in the country are highlighted, including establishing regional marine mammal stranding response centres at the identified hotspots coordinated by a National Stranding Monitoring Centre with adequate funding support.
Operational interactions between sea lion species (Otariinae) and commercial fisheries
Many marine mammal species, such as pinnipeds, have shown an increased frequency of interaction with fisheries. Thus, we aimed to investigate the operational interactions between commercial fishing
The Emergence of Mucormycosis in Free-Ranging Marine Mammals of the Pacific Northwest
Mucormycosis, a disease caused by fungi of the order Mucorales, has been documented in few cetaceans and pinnipeds and is of particular concern for endangered southern resident killer whales that spend time in this region.
Migratory strategies of juvenile northern fur seals (Callorhinus ursinus): bridging the gap between pups and adults
Evidence of habitat sexual segregation by juvenile NFS contradicts previous hypotheses that physiological differences predominantly drive the ontogeny of differential migration.
