Abstract : The Soviet whaling fleet, supported by aircraft, investigated the distribution of the Greenland seal in the Newfoundland region from 1961 through 1963. Their objective was to gather data on the dates, locations, and size of rookeries formed by seals on ice during pupping, lactation and molting. Additionally, the age and sex composition of the harems is outlined. The data are presented in tables and charts, which may serve as guides for further studies. (Author)
