Goose barnacles (Lepas australis) were found attached to satellite-tracking and time-depth recording (TDR) instruments carried by two lactating Subantarctic fur seals (Arctocephalus tropicalis) from Marion Island. We report on the movements of these seals, both of which crossed the Subantarctic Front. Barnacles surrounding the temperature probe of one TDR device did not appear to directly influence temperature recordings, although disturbances to recording accuracies by other high-precision devices carrying goose barnacles are considered likely.
