In and For more than 30 years, the Monterey Bay Aquarium has been a key contributor to sea otter recovery in California. Aquarium researchers and policy experts have advanced scientific knowledge, promoted improved management and raised public awareness of the contributions sea otters make to healthy coastal ecosystems.

Goals of the Washington sea otter recovery program are to implement strategies that will ensure a selfsustaining sea otter population in Washington through the foreseeable future; and to manage the Washington sea otter stock in a manner consistent with the federal Marine Mammal Protection Act, other state and federal laws, court rulings and federal treaties with Native American tribes.
The sea otter is found only in the northern Pacific Ocean. In Washington, it is limited in distribution to the marine waters from south of Destruction Island north to Cape Flattery, and east to Pillar Point in the Strait of Juan de Fuca.

A state recovery plan for the otter was written in (Lance et al. Sea otters in Washington face a number of potential threats (Lance et al.
These include oil spills, contaminants, disease, marine biotoxins, entanglement in fishing nets, loss of kelp habitat, and reduced genetic diversity.
Sea Otter Recovery Strategy development of such a recovery plan could not possibly have been completed in a single year. The Recovery Team identified a number of knowledge gaps with regard to recovery of sea otters.
A current population estimate is needed. A survey method, that is being developed, is needed to be able to monitor population size. Kelp beds are highly productive nearshore habitats that support commercial and sport fish, invertebrates, marine mammals and marine birds. Many factors, both natural and anthropogenic, affect the extent and composition of kelp beds.
For example, elevated water temperature and intense sea urchin grazing can decimate kelp beds. Recovery Plan Appendix B. Sea otters do not fall into the fish, whale or seal category. As noted, generic “hunting” and “fishing” rights are not enough to provide support for the take of marine mammals like the sea otter without express mention of the species in the treaty.
Sea otters live in shallow coastal waters off the northern Pacific. In the U.S., there are two distinct sea otter subspecies, the Northern sea otter and the Southern (or California) sea otter. Northern sea otters live in the waters off southcoastal Alaska, British Columbia, and Washington State.

For marine mammals also listed under the Endangered Species Act, we work with partners to develop recovery plans that guide specific actions to protect and recover their populations.

The recovery of predators has the potential to restore ecosystems and fundamentally alter the services they provide. One iconic example of this is keystone predation by sea otters in the Northeast Pacific. Here, we combine spatial time series of sea otter abundance, canopy kelp area, and benthic invertebrate abundance from Washington State, USA, to examine the shifting consequences of sea Cited by: 4.
Northern sea otters are generally found in shallow waters within about a mile of the shore. The sea floor in these areas is generally less than feet deep, allowing sea otters to dive down and find food on the bottom.
While they occasionally sleep or give birth on shore, most of their lives are spent in the water.The small geographic ranges of the sea otter populations in California, Washington, and British Columbia mean that a single major spill could be catastrophic for that state or province.
Prevention of oil spills, and preparation for rescue of otters in the event of one, are major areas of focus for conservation efforts.Sea Otter Conservation brings together the vast knowledge of well-respected leaders in the field, offering insight into the more than years of conservation and research that have resulted in recovery from near extinction.
This publication assesses the issues influencing prospects for continued conservation and recovery of the sea otter.
