Seal is a very versatile meat and almost every cut can be transformed into a gourmet dish. Most common is the tenderloin but the flippers and most other parts can all be utilized in delicious ways.

The consumption of wild, eco-friendly, natural seal meat and omega-3 seal oil has many health benefits, while the textiles derived from the seal are an ecofriendly alternative to non-renewable (plastic) clothing.

Sealing is a vital activity for tens of thousands of rural Canadians, both indigenous and non- indigenous, providing considerable economic, social and ecosystem benefits.

Seal is considered Smarter Seafood, a program implemented by Exploramer in the prospect of sustainable development and the protection of marine biodiversity. Harp and Grey Seal populations have exploded over past decades off the Atlantic Coast. They now number in the millions and their population growth continues to have serious impacts on fish stocks.
