100 % Tracking for 2012 Season!

The Regroupement des pêcheurs professionnels du sud de la Gaspésie is proud to announce that as of the 2012 season, all Gaspé fishermen will identify caught lobsters with a coded label attached to their claws. The fleet of Gaspé fishermen is the first in Quebec and the Maritimes to be 100% covered by this tracking measure, which identifies and guarantees the lobster’s origin. The RPPSG wishes to thank its financial partners, the Quebec Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, and Canada Economic Development for Quebec Regions.

This traceability project was funded by the ministère de l’Agriculture, des Pêcheries et de l’Alimentation, as part of the Programme d’appui financier aux initiatives collectives dans le secteur des pêches et de l’aquaculture commerciales.
