Fourten Weddell seals (Leptonychotes weddellii) and two crabeater seals (Lobodon carcinophaga) were immobilised at Drescher Inlet (Riiser Larsen Ice Shelf), eastern Weddell Sea coast, between January and February 1990 using a combination of ketamine, xylazine, and diazepam. Eleven Weddell seals were drugged once, and two and one were drugged two and three times each, coming to a total of 18 immobilisation procedures. Another 16 seals were immobilised between January and February 1992. Ten seals were drugged once, and three and two were drugged two and three times each, coming to a total of 25 immobilisation procedures. Narcoses were terminated with yohimbine. Data as given by doi:10.1594/PANGAEA.438920 were selected for publication. Data sets doi:10.1594/PANGAEA.438921 and doi:10.1594/PANGAEA.438926 followed the same methods and dose regimes.
