At least 10 sea lions have been shot in the Puget Sound since September 2018 as these talks gain momentum.


The Senate passed a bill (S.3119) which could allow as many as 1,000 seals and sea lions (pinnipeds) to be killed at the mouth of the Columbia River. 

There is a misconception that the best way to restore wild salmon is to kill thousands of pinniped who prey on wild salmon. It’s possible that this approach is just a scapegoat or a “band-aid fix” to address the declining salmon and Southern Resident orca populations.
