Ricketts et al. 1985). The most important worm prey may be echiuroid worms. 1). In Monterey Harbor, where the density of clams is very low compared to 20 years ago, echiuroid worms are now a common prey (Marianne Reidman, Monterey Bay Aquarium Sea Otter Census; authors' pers. ). , in press). Echiuroid worms are probably less preferred than clams by sea otters, although there are exceptions. At Green Island, Prince William Sound, Alaksa, some territorial males specialized on in tertidal echiuroids (Echiurus echiurus), almost to the exclusion of all other prey (VanBlaricom, unpubl.

The deep-burrowing in fauna often live deeper than 20 em into the sediment and include long-siphoned clams, echiuroid worms, and polychaete worms. 1, see Fig. 1 for locations).
