Why boycott Canadian seafood? Because it works. Canada’s commercial fishing industry hunts baby seals during the off-season, selling fur for a tiny fraction of the industry's overall profit. Seafood -- like snow crabs, cod, and cold water shrimp -- make up the lion’s share of their revenue, and in the past 6 years that we’ve refused to support their cruelty, the industry’s bottom line has taken a nose dive.
In 2009, the European Union banned its trade in products of commercial seal slaughters, closing a primary market for Canada’s sealing industry. As shrinking global demand for seal skins have left the fishing industry with fewer incentives to go out on the ice and make a government buyout of sealing licenses more attractive, we're truly on the verge of a breakthrough for seals.
