With the exception of the Dolphin, who are a sentient and very verbal race in Rebma and reflect more or less cheekily throughout the Seas of Shadow, much of the marine life observable and caught by surface dwellers are very like any of the common species found elsewhere. Incredibly plentiful when Nature is in balance, and fished freely as a food source by all, they do not receive protected status by Rebmans unless by Royal decree based on resource shortages or special consideration when one happens to be the tame pet of a Rebman household.

Due to the Selkie culture of Rebma, experienced hunters in Amber are rather wary of going after a great variety of 'true' seals. Though their pelts and meat are valuable, and they are in no way genetically related to the aquatic shape-changers, a fatal accident involving a Selkie in sealform would spell disastrous consequences for the hunter and his/her family.

Whales of all types do have a special status when their mysterious migratory patterns bring their numbers into Rebman waters. A strict rite of ranching by House Morfilod culls from the pods in a manner that is spiritually respectful to cetacean culture. For this reason, no whalers from the surface are permitted to hunt them, from anywhere within the undersea realm's boundaries. Rebma has gone to the brink of war on at least one instance over this issue.
