Down to Earth: Seals, sharks and sustainability

From the late 1800s through the 1960s, Maine and Massachusetts had a bounty on  seals to keep the fishing grounds seal-free. They were hunted until there were  virtually no seals in the waters off of Massachusetts. In 1972, the Marine  Mammal Protection Act was passed to help bring back the populations of several  sea mammals. @ojournal
