By the 1600's early settlers began to develop techniques to hunt the seals, the first of which was through the use of nets and clubbing
The seals provided these early settlers with meat during a time of year when they would be primarily surviving off of stored foods
By the early 1700's the hunt was extended by using boats and guns with 1723 marking the first time the hunt is recorded as an annual organized occurrence. During this time seal oil is highly valued with records of exports as far back as 1749. The oil is shipped back to England to be used as lamp oil, cooking oil, in soap and used in the process of leather treatment.
