During 239.4 hours of dedicated observation effort, a total of 312 individuals were recorded, representing four species: bearded seal (Erignathus barbatus), hooded seal (Crystophora cristata), harp seal (Pagophilus groenlandicus), and ringed seal (Pusa hispida).

This technique has proven effective in characterizing the benthic food web (Kelly and Scheibling, 2012), and has been used to determine the impact of parental diet on egg lipid content and FAS in black-lip pearl oysters Pinctada margaritifera (Ehteshami et al., 2011), identify trophic pathways in bearded seals Erignathus barbatus and Pacific walruses Odobenus rosmarus (Budge et al., 2007), and examine patterns in the milk of Antarctic fur seals Arctocephalus gazelle (Brown et al., 1999).

Polar bears are the most OHC-contaminated species in the Arctic, and those from East Greenland and Svalbard (Norway) carry the most contaminants because of their reliance on OHC-polluted blubber, mainly from ringed seal (Phoca hispida) and bearded seal (Erignathus barbatus), contaminated by OHCs originating from lower-latitude airborne pollution [Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme (AMAP) 2004; de March et al.
