Sea lions hauled out on public docks in Astoria's East Mooring Basin.  This bachelor colony of adult males takes up residence for several weeks in late summer on public docks in Astoria after having fed upon migrating salmon in the Columbia River.  The sea lions can damage or even sink docks and some critics feel that they cost the city money in the form of lost dock fees. Oregon, USA, Zalophus californianus, natural history stock photograph, photo id 19442
