The main argument of those who oppose the grey seal cull is that there is no market for seal-derived products. But this market is so successful that Canadian products were exported to 35 countries between 2005 and 2011, bringing in US$70 million. It is more ethical to humanely and sustainably harvest animals and subsequently market them, then it is to harvest them only to let them rot.
