Seal hunt far from dead, as facts can demonstrate

863a4ac9dc_64635696_o2Here are some numbers these academics should also consider: There is a demand for seal products. Between 2005 and 2011, Canada exported over $70 million US worth of seal products to more than 35 countries. The hunt supports our domestic fishery. Beside what the hunt provides, we need to account for what it prevents. There are over 7.3 million harp seals in Atlantic Canada, each of them eating up to $4,000 worth of fish products. In the 2013 seal season alone, 92,000 seals were taken, saving $3.6 billion worth of product for the fishing industry. [email protected]  18:26
