Abstract


Three vagrant Subantarctic fur seals, Arctocephalus tropicalis, were seen amongst a colony of Antarctic fur seals, A. gazella, at the isolated subantarctic island, Bouvetøya. Possible sources of the vagrants are populations at either Gough Island or the Prince Edward Islands Archipelago.

Keywords: Arctocephalus tropicalis, Bouvetøya, vagrants, subantarctic
