Le pêche du homardEnglish: Between 15 May and 15 July the ocean in front of you is dotted with the buoys of the lobster fishery. The Mi'kmaq as well as the French and the English ate lobster and other shellfish during the 18th Century. During the 1754 siege of Louisbourg, diarist Benjamin Cleaves noted on 30 May: "Our men went to catch lobsters; caught 30." The lobster fishery became a commercial operation in Atlantic Canada by the 1870's.
