Canadian Grey seal cull

14 November 2012, 07:24
CANADIAN  FISHERIES DATA DIRECTLY REFUTE SEAL CULL MYTH  IFAW
1) Canadian fisheries minister intent on spending $35 million on the machine gunning and incineration of 220*000 grey seals.

2) Research has indicated that it is not necessary to cull grey seals nor any of the predators to assist with ground fish stock recovery

3)  The idea of spending millions to kill grey seals is absolutely ludicrous, especially given the lack of evidence that would actually result in any benefit to fish stocks or fishermen.

4)   Ever since Brian Toby (wrongly) fingered harp seals for causing the collapse of the cod fishery,  Promises to kill seals have proven to be a perennial favourite for Atlantic Canadian politicians.

5)   In our rush to open commercial fisheries, killing seals continues to be promoted as a quick and dirty solution to problems created by fisheries mismanagement and political ambition.

6)  but now the evidence is appearing that culling seals could have a number of unintended and unexpected consequence. A cull of grey seals such as currently being considered by the department of fisheries and Oceans, is not supported by scientific evidence and would be cruel, costly, to Canadian taxpayers, and potentially disastrous for marine ecosystems.
