Pre-Release Pool Fishy Tegan has demonstrated that she is confident eating fish on her own. She has been moved to a larger pool where she can learn how to compete for fish with other harbour seals. She will move between pools as she progresses further and develops her skills until she reaches her release weight. It can take just a few weeks or several months before a patient is ready for release, depending on health status and treatment plan, weight gain and transport availability.
