The SEALS & SEALING NETWORK is pleased to announce that the 3rd Edition of “Seal Fest” is right around the corner. From September 10th to September 19th, restaurants in Montréal, Québec City, Toronto and St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador will showcase this Canadian Superfood, bringing a special culinary experience to Foodies across the country. Sustainable, delicious and perhaps the most nutritious protein on the planet, seal certainly has a place in Canada’s food culture.

Seal is considered “Smarter Seafood“, a program implemented by Exploramer in the prospect of sustainable development and the protection of marine biodiversity. Harp and Grey Seal populations have exploded over past decades off the Atlantic Coast. They now number in the millions and their population growth continues to have serious impacts on fish stocks.

Sealing is a vital activity for tens of thousands of rural Canadians, both indigenous and non-indigenous, providing considerable economic, social and ecosystem benefits.

The consumption of wild, eco-friendly, natural seal meat and omega-3 seal oil has many health benefits. Take advantage of the great Seal Fest promotions offered by DPA Gold and Terra-Nova Omega-3 on seal oil capsules and by SeaDNA on seal oil and seal treats for pets.


Sustainable fabrics derived from the seal are an ecofriendly alternative to non-renewable (plastic) clothing. If you are looking for a beautifully dressed seal fur to create your own design, Carino is the leader in the industry. Bilodeau Canada also offers beautifully designed seal fur accessories.

Each establishment taking part in “Seal Fest” will offer a delicious entrée accompanied by a glass of wine, cocktail or beer. Discover participating restaurants and their Seal Fest menu at

The official launch for “Seal Fest” will be held on September 10th at Maison Saint-Paul in Montreal.
