URGENT FISH APPEAL With the stormy weather we need your help for fish for the seal pups at the GSPCA

Submitted by Steve on 11:59, 19th Mar, 2019 | 0

We are pleased to report that all six seal pups are doing well and improving daily.

In fact when there is a break in the weather we are hoping to release Marty the grey seal pup back in Jersey where he was rescued.

The weather however is playing havoc with the fresh fish we require for the seal pups and despite deliveries in bulk with the sustained bad weather we have had recently our stock is starting to run low.

The GSPCA is currently appealing for fish caught in the last 3 months, ideally herring or mackerel but any whole sea fish would be much appreciated.
