Harbor seal hauled out on mussel rafts in Quilcene Bay. They commonly haul out on the rafts to rest and warm-up after feeding. The seals grow accustomed to workers on the rafts and behave similar to a neighborhood dog who will put up with your presence as long as you do not get too close. The mussel rafts provide not only a safe haul out location, but also act as a magnet for food sources such on which the seals like to feed. — at Penn Cove Shellfish.
