The funny thing about seal meat is that it is hunted in Newfoundland Canada and Greenpeace tried to shutdown the hunt as it was able to suck money out of contributers by showing cute faces of seals in their ads. Various Hollywood actors and atresses have been hired to sit on the ice for this. Bridget Bardot and one actress from "Mash" did it. A number of years ago Paul McCartney's ex convinced him to fly out to an ice floe to get a pic with a seal. These animals are quite vicious and wanted no part of posing with Sir Paul so they (Paul and Peggy) got out of there quickly. In the House of Assembly one of the Parliamentarians said after all this publicity that if Paul M wanted to stop the seal hunt, it would be "a long and winding road..."

Part of the reason Greenpeace went after the hunt is that when they hunt the seals they used to do it for the pelts only, which is a huge waste of the rest of the animal. Most people are not interested in the taste and the fat in the seals because of how it gets really tough when it is cooked and the taste is strong. If you could find a way to contact the companies in Newfoundland and Labrador that do the hunt, you can get the stuff fairly cheaply. It is sold in the spring in various places on the "Rock" especially in St. John's when the annual seal hunt (cull) is held. If all else fails, contact the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador for a contact. In Goose Bay my friends go out every spring to hunt seal as a rite of spring for their taste of seal meat.
