憂無法出口而禁殺海豹

 

anddear_news_A-64為驅趕海豹捕食魚棚的鮭魚,蘇格蘭漁民會射殺或使用水底發聲裝置,今年頭三個月已有31隻海豹被合法射殺,是去年的兩倍,而這些發聲裝置更會對其他鯨豚造成影響。蘇格蘭有26%的鮭魚會出口到美國,因憂慮美國會因違反保護野生海洋哺乳動物條例而拒絕入口,蘇格蘭決定收緊野生動物保護條例,禁止射殺海豹及管制使用水底發聲裝置。

To stop and scare seals away from breaking into salmon pens, Scottish fishermen will shoot them or use underwater acoustic deterrent devices. In the first three months of 2020, 31 seals were shot legally, which was double of last year. Moreover, the devices fishermen use would case hearing damage and stress to cetaceans. 26% of the salmons were exported to America; with the fear that US will ban their salmons because of breaking the US regulations for protecting the welfare of wild marine mammals, Scotland will ban shooting seals and  tighten the law of using acoustic devices.
