Fishing methods used in the St. Lawrence River and Gulf: R64-81/1979-22E-PDF

"After having defined fishing and established a general classification of fishing devices, the author has elaborated a systematic description of the subsistence and commercial fishing devices and methods used in the St. Lawrence River and Gulf from the period of contact between Europeans and Amerinds in the 16th century to the present day. This study, conducted from 1966 to 1968 and based on written material and on ethnographic data, describes 73 different methods of catching fish and other aquatic animals that are or have been used in that area. Each method and the corresponding fishing devices are described in detail, illustrated with a drawing and, whenever possible, placed in their historical context"--Abstract, p. 6.
