The seal hunt, which involves capturing, killing and eating large seals, has been banned in most parts of Australia since 1996, with the exception of some small coastal towns.
A ban has been put in place at the Seal Point resort in Victoria, which was the first in the world to ban the hunt.
Queensland has banned the hunt for decades, while Victoria has the highest seal population in the country.
A new ban on the hunt is due to go into effect in the middle of next month.
Victoria’s Department of Environment and Conservation said the seal hunting ban was needed to help reduce the numbers of sea lions, which have been known to kill seals.
“In the meantime, we will continue to monitor sea lion numbers and the numbers that have been captured and killed during the seal-hunting ban,” it said in a statement.
The WA Government is considering new regulations to control the seal population.
“Sea lions have been identified as a major cause of death for the state’s sea lions,” Environment Minister Brad Hazzard said.
Under WA’s new regulations, hunting will be banned from July 1.
