Save the Seals
Seals are protected native animals, drawn to fish farms as a food source. To deter them, fish farms are allowed to fire beanbag rounds at seals which habitually approach the farms. There have been reports of seals being blinded and deafened as a result of this.
Fish farms also use what they
misleadingly call 'crackers' – underwater explosives – to scare off
seals and dolphins. Sudden loud noises underwater are known to cause
distress and injury to marine life, especially those which rely on
hearing to communicate, and hunt for food.
