Sea Otter

Sea Otter

Sea ice limits the sea otter’s northern range while the distribution of giant kelp forests limits its southern range.

Sea ice limits the sea otter’s northern range to below 57 degrees North latitude, and the distribution of giant kelp (Macrocystis pyrifera) forests limits the southern range to about 22 degrees North latitude.
