Recently, the Marine and Freshwater Research Institute published a large report on the status of ecosystems around Iceland and the effect of environmental and climate change. The report is in Icelandic (there is no English version) and the title is “Staða umhverfis og vistkerfa í hafinu við Ísland og horfur næstu áratuga.” One of the chapters describes the status of seal populations around Iceland and the possible effects of environmental change. This chapter is authored by Sandra Granquist, head of Seal Research Department at the Icelandic Seal Center and seal specialist at the Marine and Freshwater Research Institute. The chapter starts on page 100.
