Tidal generators were considered but ruled out - none in the
vicinity. The two URLs you listed were for ones in Ireland and
the Bay of Fundy. The large screws of floating platforms were
also considered and ruled out - none anywhere around at the time
some of the earlier seal mutilations occurred.

The similarity in mutilation cuts needs to be taken into
account. What are the odds that some 40 seals would be sucked
into some sort of unknown propellor in a duct head first, and
never have the head itself damaged? If the odds are one in two
for any particular seal, then the overall probability is only 1
in 2 to the 40th power.

The shark hypothesis is just as improbable for the same reason,
and even more so judging from the opinions of scientists at the
Sea Mammal Research Unit at the University of St. Andrews in
