Fishing Seasons: Fundy North Fishermen work year round
Our local inshore fishery is made up of small-scale family businesses, working year round pursuing a variety of species with lots of different fishing gear. This diversity allows fishermen to switch species as natural abundances and markets shift.

|April – May||Gaspereau and Shad fisheries (Saint John River and Saint John Harbour)|
|April-October||Herring Weir fishery|
|July-September||Groundfishery- Halibut, haddock, flounder|

There are other local fisheries that are pursued throughout the year: Clams, periwinkles, dulse, and the mid-bay scallop fishery.
