Twenty-one enzyme loci have been resolved by starch gel electrophoresis from liver and muscle tissue of 82 ringed seals, 6 harp seals, and 10 hooded seals. Four loci were polymorphic in the ringed seal, but only one in the harp seal and the hooded seal. The genetic variability is, thus, low as in many large mammals.
