Need info on where to buy seal meat in Winnipeg, I know of now where local at all (or canada wide) , I hope you can lead me to the answer.
Hi Shaun,

Until recently there were regulations in place that restricted the sale of seal meat across provincial boundaries. Hopefully now since these regulations have been lifted and the new interest in the meat outside of Eastern Canada coupled with the new deals with China we will see someone step in to fill the void in the area of distribution. I'm sure we are going to see a period of transition while processing plants are sorted out but hopefully after this there will be increased availability, to date seal meat processing has been done by fishermen and sold at local markets but due to the nature of international shipping I'm sure there will need to be fully licensed facilities to do the work. For the time being you may want to check specialty butcher shops in Montreal if any have Websites and check for online businesses in the Magdalen Islands as well.

Cheers,
Mike
