Cape Cod fishermen battle seals for catch

Both commercial and recreational fishermen believe gray seals are eating enough fish that they may be inhibiting the recovery of cod and other important species. They are capable of stripping gillnets of thousands of pounds of cod or pollock, or taking striped bass right off a surfcaster’s line. It has led some fishermen to suggest it may be time to cull their numbers and/or use methods to drive them away from fishing grounds. continued @ cape cod times
