The gaspereau fishery

Trapnets are used to fish gaspereau. They are installed upstream to catch gaspereau during their spring spawning migration. The fish are then scooped out of shallow, constricted areas using a dipnet. Gaspereau is the preferred type of bait for the lobster fishery and is eaten by humans too.

American lobster

The American lobster (Homarus americanus) is widespread in coastal waters from southern Newfoundland and Labrador to New Jersey, and the main fisheries are concentrated in the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the Gulf of Maine. American lobster – now a revered food but once fed to the poor – is one of the most valuable fisheries on the east coast.

Diadromous fish

Diadromous fish migrate between freshwater and marine environments, often for the purposes of spawning. Gaspereau, for example, move from a saltwater to a freshwater environment in Atlantic Canada to spawn in lakes or slow-moving rivers (anadromous fish).
