Ottawa’s Senate Committee on Fisheries and Oceans will be in the province this week studying the seal population.

Members of the Committee, including Newfoundland and Labrador Senators, Fabian Manning and Iris Petten will meet with  members of government, Indigenous leaders, fish harvesters and those from the seal products industry over a three day tour beginning Monday.

The “fact-finding” mission begins in Bonavista with presentations to students at Discovery Collegiate and will end with public hearings on Wednesday in St. John’s.

NTV’s Bailey Howard will be following the story.
