Locations of seals in Patagonian Large Marine Ecosystem (OBIS South America, AR-OBIS, Sub-node)

Latest version published by ArOBIS Centro Nacional Patagónico on Apr 5, 2017 ArOBIS Centro Nacional Patagónico

ENGLISH: Distribution of three species of pinnipeds that breed along the Patagonian coast of Argentina and Chile. Coastal and at sea locations of South American sea lion (Otaria flavescens), fur seals (Arctocephalus australis) and southern elephant seals (Mirounga leonina) were collected during different research projects developed at Centro Nacional Patagónico, Puerto Madryn, Argentina. Information before 1990 comes from published papers. Surveys along the coast were carried out during the implementation of the Patagonian Coastal Zone Management Plan 1992-1996 (Fundación Patagonia Natural and Wildlife Conservation Society - GEF-UNDP). Locations at sea are foraging trips for seals equipped with Argos-linked Platform Transmitter Terminals (PTTs) and Satellite Dive Recorders (SDRs). -- ESPAÑOL -- Distribución de tres especies de pinnipedos que reproducen en la costa patagónica Argentina y Chilena. Las localizaciones en la costa y en el mar de lobos de un pelo (Otaria flavescens), lobo de dos pelos (Arctocephalus australis) y elefantes marinos (Mirounga leonina) fueron obtenidos por diferentes proyectos de investigación desarrollados en el Centro Nacional Patagónico, Puerto Madryn, Argentina. La información previa a 1990 fue obtenida de publicaciones. Los relevamientos de costa se llevaron a cabo durante el Plan de Manejo integrado de la Zona Costera Patagónica 1992-1996 (Fundación Patagonia Natural y Wildlife Conservation Society - GEF-UNDP). Las localizaciones en el mar son viajes de alimentación para los lobos y elefantes marinos equipados con transmisores satelitales (PTTs) y registradores satelitales de buceo (SDRs).
