Dolphin Slaughter and Tuna Fishing
EDM #1244
Tabled 06 July 1990
1989-90 Session
That this House notes with grave concern that an estimated 150,000 dolphins are killed each year by the tuna fishing industry; deplores the industry practices whereby dolphins are used to detect possible tuna fish stocks, are then chased for miles, herded together by use of explosives, which cause not only considerable fear but also interfere with the dolphins' vital sonar powers, are then caught in huge purseseine nets where many die from suffocation or from having their flippers or beaks snagged on the net and where those who escape are often attacked by sharks or otherwise separated from their schools; and calls on all tuna canners and retailers to use only tuna caught without recourse to cruel barbaric methods which kill dolphins, and on all members of the public to boycott all tuna products which cannot guarantee to be dolphin-friendly.
