Quebec Lobster Fishery is Thriving, Federal Report Shows

Lobster landings have soared over the last three years in fishing areas along Quebec’s North Shore, Gaspé, Magdalen Islands and Anticosti Island, according to new stock assessments released by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans.

Quebec fishermen caught 8,127 tonnes of the crustacean in 2018, up from 5,900 tonnes in 2015.

The biggest increases in landings were in the province’s smallest lobster fishing areas along the North Shore, which accounts for three per cent of total landings.
