Observationer af sæler i Limfjorden og tilstødende vandløb

Research output: Memorandum/expositionMemorandum

The harbour seal (Phoca vitulina) is a marine mammal found in most Danish waters. It is frequently observed in rivers and streams all over the northern hemisphere. Harbour seals naturally swim up large freshwater streams in search for food. This has caused conflicts with anglers in particular, who ex-perience a decreasing catch rate when there are seals in the streams. This re-port investigates the occurrences of harbour seals in the freshwater systems of the Limfjord catchment area in recent years, with a focus on Karup Å. Through reported observations, interviews and surveillance of Karup Å, we here summarise the seals’ use of the streams of the Limfjord catchment area.
