Seasonal Variability in Fatty Acid and Lipid Content in the Blubber of Pacific Walruses 2008

Full depth sternum blubber samples were collected from 17 adult female walruses harvested by hunting teams from the village of Gambell, Alaska. Each sample was split horizontally into two equal parts for separate lipid content analysis of the inner and outer layers. Mean lipid content of samples was 78.6% (standard deviation 7.1%).
