Notes

  • S9735 - No recent population assessment; previous estimate from Kushlan et al. (2002). In KR, a mean of 16,544 individuals (7,179 to 24,576 in 2016-2020) reported based on the Winter Waterbird Census of Korea by NIBR.
  • T7770 - The IWC analysis reports an uncertain trend with an increasing tendency for 2011-2020 (1.0504) and for 2000-2020 (1.0032). The trend is based on only 2 countries (KR and JP) and statistically uncertain. Therefore, it is not considered representative of the population.
