The seal herd is destroying the largest renewable food source in the world. There was a paper I picked up at the Dept. of Fisheries many years ago called "ONE IN A MILLION". This paper told how one cod egg in a million survive to become a mature cod fish. The only way to protect the largest renewable food source in the world is: 1. Reduce the seal herd which is destroying the cod stock (this can be seen on a TV Documentary which was aired on NTV NEWS which showed a herd of seals hunting cod fish like a pack of wolves. The seals are seen herding cod fish upon the shore line like a pack of wolves. On the news people can be seen picking up cod fish on the beach like capelin. There are millions of straving seals. Seals are going up rivers after salmon & trout. they have been seen in the rivers next to the TCH near Roaches Line miles from the ocean after trout. The seals are in epedimic porportions and something has to be done to stop the breeding of the seals, they are destroyed everything. So a seal cull to help save the cod stock is needed. They can be hunted or some kind of fish can be spread on the ice laced with a chemical that would help stop and reduce the seal population which is out of control.

A seal cull is a good idea in this area and a few more around the province. My question is, what are they going to do with all that meat and pelts ?? will it be harvested or destroyed ??
