A new study, soon to be published in Conservation Biology suggests that the Canadian Government's management plan for the northwest Atlantic harp seal hunt is not achieving it's stated objectives. Current levels of human -caused mortality exceed what the harp seal population can sustain and the herd is now very likely in decline. Details on the study can be found at the IMMA website: http://www.imma.org/PBR
