25 Jun Seasonal and Diel Differences of Ringed Seals
Seals can tell us a lot about environmental changes in our oceans. Researchers tagged 34 ringed seals from 2007-2009 with Wildlife Computers SPLASH tags.
The tags provided location, dive and haulout data. The study found three things; when adults and subadults were in the same area at the same time, dive depths were similar; both age groups tended to haul out less and dive deeper for longer at midday; and when both age groups were in the same area at the same time, the adults dove longer than the younger seals.
