January 19, 2012
CBCNews: A huge seal population is preventing cod stocks from rebounding off Nova Scotia, two former directors of science at the Bedford Institute of Oceanography say.
The work of Bob O’Boyle and Mike Sinclair backs what fishermen have argued for years.
“We conclude that indeed the seals are responsible for the lack of recovery of the cod,” Sinclair told CBC News.
