The 2000 results are in... here are the reported landed catches for the Canadian seal hunt.  The totals include those taken for personal use.  Poor ice conditions and a lack of markets for seal products have been cited for the low catches this year.

Harp seal catches......  91,602 ;  93%  pups (seals < 1 year)
