Crab fishery - Maliotenam, QC

September 19, 2012

CCPFH visited Maliotenam, Québec recently and followed Captain Jeff Vollant and his crew for a day as they fished for crab.

Jeff introduced us to his lively crew – Shashaï Michel, William Canapé and Marc-Antoinne Pinette. He also showed us around his community, located on the outskirts of Sept-Îles.  Jeff is part of a unique and successful program called Nitshimau, a program in which aboriginals from two communities work together on a fleet of boats fishing crab.  The program was created to help generate employment opportunities for the two communities.
