maritime heritage is showcased in many museums.
Lighthouse keepers, craftspeople
and shipbuilders, freshwater anglers and deep-sea fishers - the skills and know-how
needed to work the St. Lawrence and Quebec's other rivers have been honed over
many, many years.
For the Natives, the Basques and Bretons, the French
and English, Quebeckers and other Canadians, fishing and navigation have been
sources of sustenance, defence and pleasure in turn.
