Marine Tetrapods

B130830_02CMP_WILL_38875

Marine tetrapods are vertebrates secondarily adapted for the marine environment. They obtain most or all of their nourishment from the sea. This includes marine reptiles, marine mammals (cetaceans, pinnipeds, sirenians, sea otters, sea bats and polar bears) and seabirds. This Backgrounder reviews their general natural history and compiles information relevant to the status, ecology and distribution of those marine tetrapods expected in the Kitimat Fjord System.

This and other Backgrounders are available on the Reports page.
