Let's see.....the seals are not deterred from the audio devices. In fact, some believe that they are attracted to them in a Pavlovian dinner bell mode. And the killer whales, which normally keep the seal populations in check, are not frequenting the areas.

Fewer killer whales = more seals = more predation on farm fish = need for another solution.

This is a pretty ugly cycle. I hope it ends soon.
