I think they are showing up for the same reason why the dolphins are weirded out this year. Seismic activity and volcanic activity in the Pacific
Ocean closer to the coast is messing with the seasonal fish schools.
Not too long ago seals would be captured and skinned, culling their numbers. I don't see the sympathy in putting them in seal jails and letting them
remain confused about where to get a meal. These are the ones that under natural circumstances would not make it. Cute as they are and with respect
for all life, why do they get to be hand fed while their surviving brothers and sisters, and more notably, parents, are making it without human
Maybe they all have some sort of genetic defect that makes them unfit for collecting food in their habitat.
The rotten seaweed, or the blooms, may be the case this time around, and the budget is tight for taking water samples so the scientists are without a
logical answer. They can guess; sometimes a guess is all you need, unless you want to take a gamble and take a pet psychic to a seal to communicate
telepathically with them.
