Fishermen, scientists and conservationists have argued over what to do about grey seal numbers on the eastern coast of Canada.
Once facing extinction, the seal population in Nova Scotia has soared to 300,000 as the demand for fur, oil and seal meat have declined.
This population boom is seen by some as a cause of plummeting cod fish stocks, which led to the loss of 30,000 fishing industry jobs.
