The Red Lobster restaurant chain is the world's largest purchaser of Canadian seafood. One of Red Lobster's seafood suppliers, the Barry Group, owns Atlantic Marine Products, a large seal processing company.
Commercial hunters kill 350,000 seals per year, and 97 percent of these seals are less than three months old. The seals are either shot or clubbed to death.
Red Lobster could help end the commercial seal hunt if they chose to boycotting Canadian seafood, putting pressure on their seafood suppliers to re-think their practices.
Sign the petition asking Red Lobster President Kim A. Lopdrup not to buy or serve Canadian seafood until Canada stops the seal slaughter.
