Seals

Seven species of pinnipedia have been spotted in Icelandic waters. The common seal and the grey seal breed all around the country, the others are vagrants. Seals have been hunted in Iceland from the settlement for their furs and meat. The common seal gets up to 2 m long and weights up to 150 kg. It can be seen in the bays on islets and in the sands of the Icelandic South coast. The grey seal is considerably larger as the common seal. It gets 3 m long and weights between 300 and 400 kg. The greatest number of grey seals is found in the Mýrar area in West Iceland, in Breiðafjörður bay in Westfjords and on the Skagi peninsula in the North.
