Seals kept their distance away from greatest concentration of salmon that were piling up at hatchery, and the hug sea lion males that the salmon attracted.
Actually on rocks 1/2 from Dijupivogur to Papey.
This Harbor Seal pup found me when I was walking at low tide by barking/moaning at me. He/she was so well camouflaged, I hadn't even noticed him/her. Since I'm part of the Northwest Marine Mammal Stranding Network, I knew what to do for the next few hours-- call in the sighting, keep people and dogs 100 yards back, and hope the seal mom returns to the pup.
