NOAA Photo Library Image - fish7963

Northern fur seal floating, asleep, with back flippers folded over on left front flipper. The fur seal fishery in the Bering Sea is an outstanding example of successful management. The resource - after overexploitation caused a serious decline - has been restored by wise application of knowledge after many years of scientific research.
