We keep careful records about eating habits, behavior and more for each seal.

The Aquarium’s harbor seals eat between 6 and 12 pounds of fish and squid every day, for a total of between 2,000 and 6,000 calories!

Seals are very curious and love to play. The fishicles shown in the photo below are a particular favorite. The trainers freeze chunks of fish and squid inside cubes of ice, and the seals eagerly destroy the ice to get at the tasty treats inside.

Aquarium visitors can interact with the seals with these exciting behind-the-scenes programs. Keep tabs on the seals at the Aquarium on the Trainers Blog.
