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 Humane Society of The United States started this pledge with a single signature, and now has 61,271 supporters. Start a petition today to change something you care about.
