WELCOME TO SEALFEST

From March, 22
to April, 1 2018

Experience delicious seal meat recipes specially prepared by the best chefs in Greater Montreal and Quebec City.
A cocktail, beer or glass of wine will be included with each tasting.

How is the harvest conducted?

Each year DFO scientists set an annual quota taking in numerous factors including ice conditions, birth rates, etc. This quota has not been reached in years. Last year less than 20% of the actual quota was harvested.
Both Harp and Grey Seal are listed as “Smarter Seafood” by Exploramer, a certification program that ensures marine resources are managed and used responsibly.
