Notes

  • S8324 - Stroud et al. (2004). Tertickiy et al. (1999) estimated the West Siberian population a 200,000-400,000 individuals, but Lappo et al. (2012) considers this a likely overestimate.
  • T6324 - Lappo et al (2012) suggest that the population is declining.
  • T7126 - IWC trend is stable with a negative tendency (Wetlands International 2017). Lappo et al (2012) suggest that the population is declining.
