Fish boycott to save seals

NEW YORK CITY––Legal Seafoods, a 31-restaurant chain with anchor franchises in New York City and Boston, on May 9 joined Tavern-on-the-Green in Central Park and the 168-store Whole Foods Market chain in endorsing a boycott of Atlantic Canada seafood called by the Humane Society of the U.S. in protest against the Atlantic Canadian seal hunt.

The boycott targets snow crabs, lobsters. shrimp, mussels, and ground fish.

The Legal Seafoods announcement coincided with the arrival in New York City of Canadian ambassador Frank McKenna, who was to make several prominent appearances.

While HSUS is promoting the boycott through a media strategy, Anthony Marr of Vancouver, British Columbia, on May 13 set out on a 90-day “Terminate the Seal Hunt Campaign Tour” of the western U.S. and Canada. Pushing the boycott through personal persuasion and petitioning, Marr said he had 35 speaking engagements already booked, with about 20 more still being finalized.

“Carmen Crosland, age 14, president of Youth Against Animal Abuse, will display a web page at <www.YAAAonline.org> of all the seafood merchants” who join the boycott, Marr said. Marr will also post the list at his own campaign web site, <www.HOPE-CARE.org>, and welcomes pledges and inquiries about his itinerary at either <Anthony-Marr@HOPE-CARE.org> or 604-222-1169.
