  • Cod fishing

    Lithograph depicting cod fishing.

    This activity marked the history of the St. Lawrence. In fact, cod fishing contributed significantly to the economic development of certain regions, like Gaspésie.

    Over time, the modernization of fishing techniques almost caused this species to disappear. Things were so serious that the Government of Canada had to put restrictions on commercial cod fishing.
