    Sea otters in Prince William Sound. Alaska, were spatially segregated into predominantly (97%) male areas at the front of the expanding population and breeding areas with fewer (up to 33%) males. The sea otter (Enhydra lutris) is a marine mammal native to the coasts of the northern and eastern North Pacific sea otters typically weigh between 14 and 45 kg (31 and 99 lb), making them the heaviest members of the weasel family, but among the smallest marine most marine mammals, the sea otter's primary form of insulation is an exceptionally thick coat of fur, the.

Boat‐based surveys have been commonly used to monitor sea otter populations, but there has been little quantitative work to evaluate detection biases that may affect these surveys. We used ground‐based observers to investigate sea otter detection probabilities in a boat‐based survey of Prince William Sound, by: Detection of sea otters in boat-based surveys of Prince William Sound, Alaska (Marine mammal study) [Mark S Udevitz] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers.

We used ground-based observers to investigate sea otter detection probabilities in a boat-based survey of Prince William Sound, by: Boat-based surveys were used to monitor the Prince William Sound sea otter population before and after the Exxon Valdez oil spill.

Population and loss estimates could be obtained from these surveys by direct expansion from the counts in the surveyed transects under the assumption that all otters in those transects were observed.

The new method represents an improvement. In Alaska, sea otter populations in Southcentral and Southeast Alaska have stabilized or are continuing to increase. However, in southwest Alaska, sea otters have experienced a sharp population decline in the last 20 years. Threats. Threats to sea otters include predation, overharvest, fishery interactions, disease, and oil spill.
