The St. Lawrence and fishing…quite the tale!


  •  Homarus Eco-Centre

    If you’re touring New Brunswick, I strongly advise you to visit the Homarus Eco-Centre to learn absolutely everything about lobsters. In the mini-hatchery, you can see lobster larva and touch adult lobsters. I loved the seine net fishing activity, which taught me how to identify many species that live on the coast.

  •  Musée de la Mer

    On the Magdalen Islands, people often use the expression “aux Îles, c’est pas pareil” or “on the Islands, it’s different”. Visiting the Musée de la Mer certainly shows why!

    I especially liked the exhibition Vivre aux Îles - Vivre les Îles, a fascinating journey through the history of the Islands’ inhabitants!

  •  Musée de la Gaspésie

    The Gaspésie region played a key role in Québec’s colonization. Stopping in at this museum enabled me to discover the rich history of this peninsula and its inhabitants.

    I also visited the Centre d'archives de la Gaspésie and found some very interesting historical photos.
