The long-term objective of the U.S. AMLR field research program is to describe the functional relationships between Antarctic krill, their predators, and key environmental variables. Every year on-land studies of predator foraging ecology and reproductive success have been coordinated with large scale oceanographic surveys off the South Shetland Islands. Since 1996/97, U.S.-AMLR predator studies have taken place at Cape Shirreff, Livingston Island. This report summarizes the pinniped portion of predator studies for the 2000/01 austral summer.
