On arriving at this peninsula at Natashquan, we are immersed in the history of fishing in Gulf of St. Lawrence waters.
Fishing at Les Galets
Located in Natashquan, Les Galets heritage site is a rocky peninsula. At the time, the cod fishery operated to full capacity here!
The nearby beach enabled fishermen to strand their boats, that is, let them slide up on the sand without piercing the hull.
As is the case for many villages whose livelihood depends on the sea, everyone lent a helping hand: men, women and children.
