Steller's Sea-eagle

Haliaeetus pelagicus

Steller's Zeearend

The Steller's Sea-eagle is a large bird of prey in the family Accipitridae. It lives in coastal northeastern Asia and mainly preys on fish


This species has a small, regionally declining population as a result of habitat degradation, pollution, poisoning by lead shot, and over-fishing. It therefore qualifies as Vulnerable by the IUCN. The global population is estimated to number c.4,600-5,100 individuals, including c.1,830-1,900 breeding pairs (M. McGrady et alin litt. 2012), assumed to be equivalent to c.3,600-3,800 mature individuals.
