Seal pups are tube-fed a blended mixture of rehydration fluid, herring fillets, salmon oil, antibiotics and vitamins 4 times a day.
After a week or two whole herring are introduced. Seals are force fed until they are able to eat by themselves.

Flooding the pens with seawater enables pups to learn to feed by themselves from the water.
