Atlantic Canada, seals, cod, and the fishing industry have had a tumultuous past. The science communication about seal and cod science has not been great when dealing with the fishing industry, especially since so many fishers rely on their catch as a way to support their families. 

The Canadian Government has assembled a Task Team to work with the fishing industry to communicate seal science in a more effective manner than in the past. 

Listen for how this task team was a bit confusing when announced in a group of pro seal people.
