In Peter the Great Bay, the spotted Seal (Phoca largha) is closely connected with island haulout sites sites all year round and forms four types of onshore associations, preliminary, reproductive, molting, and rehabilitative. It has been found over long term studies that changes in these associations make up an annual cycle. The specific redistribution pattern of seals in the bay appears to be a result of consecutive transformation processes, viz., the break up of previous types of associations and the simultaneous formation of the following ones. The mechanisms underlying every type of onshore associations of spotted seals and the peculiarities of their functioning are discussed.
