Canadian Commercial Seal Hunt to Open April 10th

Canada’s commercial seal hunt will open once again on the East Coast on April 10th. The Canadian government has not announced the 2016 quota, but it will likely remain at 400,000 harp seals, 60,000 grey seals and 8,200 hooded seals. However, the commercial seal hunt is expected to kill only a fraction of this number.
