San Francisco Pinniped Haul-out Sites (NMFS, 2007)

National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) does not have a GIS-based database for all of the pinniped haulout sites in California. Much of the information is known through word of mouth or in unpublished literature (e.g., academic research) that may be lost over time. In the past, many projects occurring along the California coastline included components that impacted marine mammals. However, determining whether a project may impact marine mammals, specifically pinnipeds, has been challenging for those unfamiliar with pinniped behavior.
