Abstract

Fisherman Mike Brown explains why his co-workers have no love for seals. After the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972 prohibited shooting them, studies found them eating 11 percent of the total Maine finfish landing. Fishermen responding by trading weirs and floating traps, for mobile gear, but they still don't see harbor seals as the cuddly creatures of the public imagination.
