ALASKAN SEALS TO
HAVE eras TAKEN
Dr. Hanna Will Make Count of
SAN FRANCISCO. Aug IT.?While
Uncle Sam's census department at
Washington is busily engaged in
tabulating his ^habitants, anothT
census is under way in far off Alaskan
waters under conditions somewhat
more difficult than those that confronted
the census takers in their
Under the direction of the United
States Bureau of Fisheries Dr. G. Dallas
Hanna, member of the staff of the
California Academy of Sciences, is
making a count of the fur-bearing
sealu of the Fribilof Islands.
Dr. Hanna has been connected with
this work each year since 1913. In
1919 it was reported that there were
540,000 animals in the herd. In 1910.
when the Government first took over
the operation of the island Industry,
there were less than 200,000. During
the time when this increase was taking
place enough surplus and useless
males have been killed and their skins
sold at auction to provide the national
treasury with $3,500,000 above all expenses.
according to W. W. Sargfnt.
secretary of the California Academy
The purpose of the census Is chiefly
to determine how many animals can
be safely removed each year and still
provide for a maximum percentage of
increase of the herd. If the increase
in 1920 continues as heretofore, it is
said that there should be about 000.000
of these amphibious fur bearers',
by far the largest herd In existence,
as well as a surplus of about 30,000
males, which can be killed for their
skins. At current prices of these furs
they will be valued at about $3,000,000.
"Since the cost of operation will be
less than $200,000, it Is quite evident
that this Industry Is one of the best.
If not the best, financial enterprise the
Government has,'' said Sargent, "and
1t Is capable of almost unlimited expansion,
provided the females are pro
tected at sea and the surplus males
are removed from the herd. The
fighting of such males on the crowded
rookeries causes a large mortality
among the females and young.
The carcasses of the animals killed
were formerly allowed to waste, but
last year a by-products plant wns put
Into operation, by means tit which It
Is expected a very superior oil and
animal meal will be placed on the
market, The census which will be
taken this year will enable a close approximation
to be made of the
quantities of these products, which
