Ecopoetics Along Shorelines


May 20, 2018

I’m a Steller sea lion (Eumetopias jubatus) and I’d like to talk about Figure 6. As you can see, Chinook salmon are being consumed at higher rates as time goes on and as our (us predators) populations recover. Us Steller sea lions do not want to be included with the California sea lions, who are erratic but overall eat more salmon. As the graphs show us, Steller sea lions don’t even bypass 1 million fish. This might seem like a lot but look at the orcas! Want to save Chinook salmon? Deal with the orcas and leave us pinnipeds alone.
