Seal Hunt Quotas (Total Allowable Catch, TAC) and Official Numbers of Seals Killed Over the Years

Below are the harp seal hunt quotas (officially called "Total Allowable Catch," or TAC) and reported kills since 1952. (Quotas were instituted in 1971.) The actual kills do not include seals that were 'struck and lost' (i.e., injured by sealers but escaped, possibly dying later of their injuries, or just sunk and not retrieved). The Canadian government guesstimates that the number of struck and lost seals is about 5% of the seals landed.

This table is taken from the IFAW report Seals and Sealing 2007
