Comments: Long history of commercial exploitation for pelts, both at sea and at breeding rookeries (see Reeves et al. 1992 for details). Commercial harvest on Pribilof Islands ended in the mid-1980s, but a relatively small subsistence harvest by Aleuts is allowed. Subsistence harvest by Aleut residents on Pribilof Islands in 1993 was 1518 seals on St. Paul Island and 319 seals on St. George Island (Federal Register, 1 November 1993).
