    Exploramer sea tours enable participants to discover the remarkable world of the Estuary and Gulf of St. Lawrence ecosystems.

    Visitors watch traps full of whelks and crabs being lifted out of the water and are allowed to touch little-known organisms.

    You can also take part in a real oceanographic mission, gathering data, taking measurements and jotting down observations of all sorts.

  • Smarter seafood

    Cooked sea urchins.

    With “Fourchette bleue / Smarter seafood” certification, Exploramer wants to promote healthy management of marine resources by encouraging restaurants and fishmongers to offer varieties that are not well known among the St. Lawrence River’s many edible species (pout, sea urchins, algae, etc.).

    This way, fishermen, diversify their catches, which helps reduce the pressure on fisheries of the species most in demand.
