LINK response to consultation on seal haul-out sites

19th July 2011

We warmly welcome the work undertaken by the Sea Mammal Research Unit to identify the initial list of haul-out sites for both grey and harbour seals. However, we are extremely concerned by the subsequent rationalisation of this list to strike an ‘optimum balance between maximising protection for the largest number of seals while minimising possible impacts on other sustainable activities’. We do not understand the rationale for choosing to protect 50% of the population from harassment.
