Patient Progress

Pre-Release Pool Scott McGillivray has demonstrated that he is confident eating fish on his and that he can compete for food with other harbour seals. He has been moved to a larger pool where he can further test and improve his skills. He will move between pools as he progresses further and develops his skills until he reaches his 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.

Patient Updates

Scott is a very small put, despite gaining weight. He is in fish school now, learning how to eat fish in the water in his tub, and he is doing an excellent job. But as soon as he has finished, his tub gets drained because he gets cold fast.
