Following the fish
While Dennis Point's most valuable fishery is lobster, this wharf is also home to Canada's largest ground fishing fleet. This diverse fishery takes our fishermen (and women) to many special fishing areas.

Going the distance
Some fishermen (and women) stay close to our shores to fish, while others venture further out to sea. The distance they go is referred to [as] "inshore", "mid-shore", or "offshore.

• In-shore - approximately .8-8 km (.5 to 5 mi) from shore
• Mid-shore - some 8- 40 km (5 -25 mi) from shore
• Offshore - at least 80 km (50 mi) and more from shore

Where the fishin's good
Where fishermen go for their catch depends on the species and quantity of fish in an area. Check out the adjacent map for some fishing hotspots.

This is a Living Wharves Fishing Skills Demo location.
