Locations of Seals in Patagonian Large Marine Ecosystem (OBIS South America, ARGENTINA (AR-OBIS) SOUTHWEST ATLANTIC)
Entry ID: OBIS.Patagonia_Seals_1


Summary
Abstract: 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).

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).
