The St. Lawrence River is an immense treasure trove of astounding delicacies.
These include the Bas-Saint-Laurent region’s smoked fish, Gaspésie’s Northern shrimp, the Côte-Nord’s scallops and lobster from the Îles-de-la-Madeleine. Also on the list: cod, herring, halibut, flounder, mackerel, smoked salmon, snow crab, mussels, clams, periwinkle and more. In Québec, we’re crazy about seafood.
Enjoy delicious seafood year-round. In the spring, our grocery stores abound with lobster, and oyster season runs from September to December.
