"Seals are fast swimmers, and spend most of the year in the sea. Harp seals migrate south in the autumn and north in the summer, which can be a journey of up to 8,000 km total. They can also move very quickly across the ice. Harp seals are known to eat at least 67 different species of fish and 70 species of invertebrates. The diets of these diverse eaters also vary according to age, season, location, and year. Despite claims to the contrary, it is clear that Atlantic cod, including the northern cod stock, are only a minor component of the annual harp seal diet."
