The official 2022 snow crab season began on March 25th in Quebec. The snow crab is found in Area 17 from Tadoussac to Pointe-des-Monts on the North Shore and from Rivière-du-Loup to Rivière-à-Claude on the South Shore.
The lobster season is scheduled to begin on May 7th, 2022. In Quebec, it arrives from the Gaspé region, Anticosti Island, and the Magdalen Islands.
