one of the nine species, Arctocephalus pusillus

Fur seals are any of nine species of pinnipeds in the Otariidae family. One species, the northern fur seal (Callorhinus ursinus) inhabits the North Pacific, while eight species in the Arctocephalus genus are found primarily in the Southern hemisphere.

Therefore they are not a single taxonomic unit.
