Abstract

This report details the causes of death of two adult Steller sea lions, Eumetopias jubatus, stranded on the north coast of California. In California, as in other areas of their range, Steller sea lion abundance is declining for unknown reasons. Several theories, including death due to fishery interactions, commercial harvest, long-term environmental change, and nutritional stress have been proposed. The Steller sea lions in this report were multiparous-aged females that died from pneumonia. Both animals also had evidence of gunshot wounds.
