Where Are All The Sea Lions ?

One of the top tourist attractions in SF has vanished? The executive director of the marine mamil center says that back in October he counted l over 1700 sea lions at pier 39...The marine mamil center says that these are migratory animals and we shouldn't be so shocked... Sometimes they go to the channel islands about 350 miles from here but Aquarium officials aren't so sure...In the past there has been an abundance of herring and other food for them in the harbor..They say that there is a shortage of food in the bay and that may be why they have disappeared as they will  go where the food is....As far as the tourists go they dont seem too worried about why ,but they are a bit disappointed to not see them
