Stripers In Labrador

In 2017 striped bass began appearing off the coast of Labrador, a phenomenon previously unobserved by local coastal fishers. Tagged fish revealed that these striped bass originated from the Southern Gulf of St. Lawrence population, which usually spawn in the Northwest Miramichi River. The conventional range for this population spans the Southern Gulf, covering areas from the Gaspé’s south shore to eastern New Brunswick waters, PEI, and stretching to Cape Breton’s western shore. The sudden appearance of striped bass in Labrador indicated that they had ventured well outside their customary territory.
