Let’s Do Lunch
Coastal brown bears (Ursus arctos) can double their weight between spring and fall, thanks to a diet rich in salmon. Adult males average 400-to 900 pounds with some known to reach 1,400 pounds. Various species of salmon arrive in coastal streams from late June through September. Bears at Katmai National Park have been observed catching as many as 30 fish a day. During times of plenty, bears may just eat the skin, brains and eggs to maximize caloric intake, a practice known as high grading. Fish, birds and lesser-skilled bears will finish off the scraps. Escorted bear viewing is an increasingly popular activity with recreationists, particularly in Kodiak and along Alaska’s Katmai coast.
