They are primarily shoreline dwellers, can stay under water for 3 to 4 minuets, but another article says up to 8 minuets ? Did not say how deep they can dive, but I guess it would depend on how long they want to stay under, don't sound like they leave the shorline however.
I don't think they are a huge problem for young Salmon in deep water, but I wouldn't want to be an adult caught in a net with one.
Says they sometimes kill for "sport".
Can they be hunted/trapped ?
They are trapped in Ontario; I don't know about the NH laws.
Saw another otter yesterday in Cotton Cove (Squam)
