Seals and the Seal Hunt in the News in 2018

The Trudeau administration continued to allow and promote sealing in 2017, and 80,924 harp seals and 1,417 grey seals were killed.

Most of the harp seals who were killed were pups who were killed primarily for their pelts. But in 2017, the DFO authorized the killing of 4,000 adult harp seals by Newfoundland sealers, specifically for one Canadian company that said that it had an order for seal blubber to be used to produce seal oil capsules. The DFO did not provide the final kill figures specific to this kill.
