Stop Blaming Seals for Disappearing Fish

 

There were 30 million seals when the first European explorers landed on the eastern coast of Canada in the late 17th century, and the cod were far more than abundant. Now, with less than one fourth of the original seal population, its far-fetched, (and even impossible),  to blame seals for causing the fish stock collapse.


Globally, 30 percent of fish stocks have already collapsed, while virtually all fisheries risk running out of commercially viable catches by 2050. There are 35 million people fishing around the world on 20 million boats.

Stop Blaming Seals for Disappearing Fish. It's a myth Canada uses to murder them for for their fur. It is cruel, scientifially unsound, and unsustainable. It is certain that if the Canadian government continues with their current management (extermination) approach, the harp and hooded seal populations will become endangered.
