Adm. Hist/Bio. Sketch: The Spain Exporters Association Ltd. (SEAL) was incorporated in 1942. Its objectives were to market salt fish produced in Newfoundland to markets in Spain. To meet its objectives it was given the right to charter vessels to ship fish to markets and to raise money needed to carry on its business. Members of the association were required to be licensed exporters and in order to qualify must have shipped an average of 1500 quintals or more of fish to Spain in the preceding 2 years. The function of the Association was taken over by NAFEL in 1947.
