Members of the Tsawwassen First Nation are teaming up with commercial and sport-fishers on B.C.ís coast to call on the new federal fisheries minister to allow a West Coast seal and sea lion harvest. The group, called the Pacific Balance Pinnipeds Society, says that growing populations of seals and sea lions endangers future salmon populations.

Of course the Global reporter got the population numbers all wrong, and the anti's at Ocean Wise have started their bleating already.
But, this is an initiative that is long overdue IMHO, and I will support it any and every way I can...  ;)

It's a brilliant idea.
There should be a regular harvest of seals and sea lions and a great big barbeque.
I don't understand why they don't allow it.  I am sure there would be a lot of opposition by the vegetarian Peta type people but what a great source of protein.  Free range and no antibiotics. 

Put me down for a seal flipper burger.  Thank you.

They are full of mercury and not tasting good at all from what I know.

Which pretty much indicates you know extremely little.  ;D
