The National Marine Mammal Laboratory (NMML) requires the charter of a vessel to conduct surveys of Stellar Sea Lion pups and non pups and to conduct other research activities on Sea Lions in the Russian Far East. Surveys of Steller Sea Lions will be conducted in the western Bering Sea and the northern part of the Okhotsk Sea during Sea Lion pupping period of June-July 2002. Specifically, the surveys in the western Bering Sea will include the eastern coast of Kamchatka (from the Southern tip to the Navarian area) and the Commander Islands. In the Okhotsk Sea, the surveys will include all Stellar Sea Lion sites in the Northern part of the Okhotsk Sea, including Yamski Inlands, Ioni Island, Lisynskogo Penninsula, and Zavyalov Island. Counts at these sites will include the total number of live and dead pups, territorial males, juveniles, and other nonpups. Counts must be obtained from land when possible.

Observational studies are requested to monitor Steller Sea Lion rookeries and haulout sites for banded and tagged sea lions, record reproductive behavior, and age and sea of sea lions. Sites to be monitored include Medney Island, Tuleny Island, Brat Chirpoev Island, Antisferov Island, Luvushki Island, and Raikoke Island. The (NMML) will provide the contractor with the data format and collection protocol to ensure compatibility of data to similar data collected by the Government on US Steller Sea Lion rookeries. These observational studies will last for 4 to 6 weeks during the end of May to early July at all sites except the Medney Island and Tuleny Island sites where the observations will last for 2 months , approximately from the end of May to early August.
