This fishing village, whose bay opens onto the Gulf, is located very close to Gaspé.
Fishermen from father to son
For a long time, many inhabitants of the Gulf of St. Lawrence made their living fishing.
Cod fishing, for example, ensured the livelihood of many Gaspé fishermen for over 200 years. This occupation was handed down from father to son, as soon as boys were 10 years old.
The cod stocks were depleted in the 1990s and, today, the wharf is busy due to shellfish and groundfish fishing.
