Upskilling: Traditional Square Net Fishing on the Gaspereau River

Introduction to Traditional Square Net Fishing on the Gaspereau River with Chris Gertridge.
Monday May 8, 9:30am, no charge. Gertridge Fish Net

Chris will speak to the history of the fishery starting with the Mi’kmaq through the Acadians to the New England Planters right to present day, as well as present day conservation for the fishery and upcoming challenges that tidal power generation may cause.

(Driveway is across from the old farmhouse located at 2069 White Rock Road, Gaspereau. Follow the driveway through the vineyard to the bottom on the hill where you will see the “fish shack”. Entry to the net is through the side door of the building.)

Big thanks to our board member, Stacy Corkum, Hidden Meadow Farm, for setting this up.
