Develop and promote sport fishing on the St. Lawrence and implement incentive measures
The St. Lawrence offers exceptional opportunities for those interested in trying out sport fishing or taking it up again after a period of inactivity. The project brings together initiatives targeting the development and promotion of sport fishing on the St. Lawrence. The striped bass represents the species with the greatest potential for developing sport fishing in the coming years. For example, the new presence of striped bass south of the Gaspésie offers the opportunity to develop sport fishing in this region of Quebec. In addition, following the success of the program to reintroduce a new striped bass population in the St. Lawrence Estuary, it will be necessary to establish the conditions required for opening and practising sport fishing of this species.
