Information about the Common Harbor Seal:
Harbor or Common Seals are found in both the northern hemisphere of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. They are members of the family Phocidae. They are "true" seals commonly found in the coastal waters, growing to about 6 feet long (1.8 meters) and weighing roughly 300 pounds (130 kg.) It is estimated the entire worldwide population of these pinnipeds is between 5-6 million individuals. At one time these seals were hunted for their coasts, but bans on seal hunts have allowed the animals numbers to stabilize, although there are some subspecies that are considered threatened. The seals feed on a variety of ocean life, such as fish, crabs, shrimp, squid and even occasionally sea birds. They agile swimmers, but like other seals are sluggish on land.
