On average, sealers make less than 5 percent of their income from killing seals. So what brings in the other 95 percent? Seafood.
Here is how your boycott of Canadian seafood can help:
Canada's Department of Fisheries and Oceans says it will shut down the commercial seal slaughter when Canada's fishing industry asks it to do so — and since more than 60 percent of Canadian seafood exports go to the United States each year, this gives us a lever.
Through the boycott of Canadian seafood we can send a clear message: If Canada's fishing industry would like open access to our U.S. market, it needs to stop the commercial seal slaughter for good.
YES! I will boycott Canadian seafood to save seals.
I pledge not to buy Canadian seafood — like snow crabs, cod, and cold water shrimp — as long as the Canadian commercial fishing industry continues its slaughter of baby seals.
Pledge to save seals by joining the nationwide boycott of Canadian seafood.
