Only seven species of owls in the world primarily eat fish, and the Blakiston’s Fish Owl is the only one to live outside of a tropical region—living in a subarctic climate. The secret to the owl’s success is likely the high concentration of salmonid fish in the area, plus its ability to switch to non-fish prey when necessary. At one time more than 1,000 Blakiston’s Fish Owls inhabited Hokkaido, but because of human development there are now only about 100 fish owls left.
