Mi'gmaq and Maliseet commercial fisheries of the communities of Gesgapegiag, Gespeg and Viger.

Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) compiles information on commercial fisheries (fishing effort and lobster e-logs) in an Excel spreadsheet format. These spreadsheets were provided to MMAFMA for the communities of Gesgapegiag, Gespeg and Viger for the period 2010-2015. MMAFMA used DFO's raw data to create maps for the Atlas of Mi'gmaq and Maliseet sites and uses of the marine St. Lawrence . The species caught by the communities are snow crab, rock crab, northern shrimp, lobster, Greenland halibut, Atlantic halibut, whelk, sea cucumber and green sea urchin. Three types of maps have been produced: - sectors caught by species (whelk, lobster, rock crab, sea urchin, Atlantic halibut and sea cucumber); - the total quantity caught (kg) per species and community per DFO's fishing quadrilateral (northern shrimp, snow crab and Greenland halibut); - summary of commercial fisheries in number of species caught (polygons) and land use intensity (raster).

Disclaimer: The data shown are not to be used as a surrogate for consultation and dialogue with the communities.
