Boycott Canadian Seafood to Save Seals!

Boycott Canadian Seafood to Save Seals!

On average, sealers make less than 5 percent of their income from killing seals. So what brings in the other 95 percent? Seafood.

Here is how your boycott of Canadian seafood can help:

Canada's Department of Fisheries and Oceans says it will shut down the commercial seal slaughter when Canada's fishing industry asks it to do so—and since more than 60 percent of Canadian seafood exports go to the United States each year, this gives us a lever.

Through the boycott of Canadian seafood we can send a clear message: If Canada's fishing industry would like open access to our U.S. market, it needs to stop the commercial seal slaughter for good.

YES! I will boycott Canadian seafood to save seals.

I pledge not to buy Canadian seafood -- like snow crabs, cod, and cold water shrimp -- as long as the Canadian commercial fishing industry continues its slaughter of baby seals.

      The way these baby seals are slaughtered is horrific and clearly unjustifiable. No one needs to wear fur!

      The face that launched a thousand protests: "These seal pup once described by the missionaries to the Inuit people as the lambs of God now scream in government dictated silence as they die out of range of cameras and the eyes of the compassionate". Lynn

      There is no reason they can not stop the senseless murder of these animals.

      Every soul is worth saving. No more greed no more suffering they have the right to life.
