Because eating seal is probably the equivalent of eating a your pet dog/cat to some people, haha. The seal numbers are actually quite high....the population of one herd was estimated at 5.5 million for 2008, and the total allowable catch (TAC) from that was 275,000.

The reason you probably never see it for sale is to quote a friend of mine from Newfoundland, " Seal tastes alot like Turr and Turr tastes like a kereosene soaked boot."

That's a pretty accurate description of it there, Jim, haha. Oddly enough, I frickin love turr (I shot about 60 of 'em during the week I was home), seal is really greasey and stinks up the house when you cook it but is always a good meal. Definitely more of an acquired taste though.

heinz57 -> here's a link to some nutritional information about seal meat...
