Distribution of the Harp Seal Whelping Grounds in the White Sea 1960s–1990s

Distribution of the Harp Seal Whelping Grounds in the White Sea 1960s–1990s Analysis of air survey data has shown that from the 1960s to the 1990s the whelping grounds of the harp seal Phoca groenlandica formed at the end of February through the first days of March in two regions of the White Sea: in the eastern part of Bassein and in Gorlo. The areas of the whelping grounds varied depending on the current ice conditions. It was recorded that, despite ice conditions unfavorable for the pups' survival that developed in some years, in general the ice regime of the White Sea was favorable for reproduction of the White Sea population of the harp seal. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Marine Biology Springer Journals
