SEATTLE (AP) - The Seattle Aquarium is welcoming a six-month-old sea otter from Alaska.

Mishka is scheduled to arrive Saturday from the Alaska SeaLife Center in Seward. She was rehabilitated after being caught last July in a fishing net and now weighs 26 pounds.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said Mishka likely wouldn’t survive if released back into the wild.

The Seattle Aquarium has housed northern sea otters since opening in 1977.
