Photo: St Lunaire Griquet Crab Fishing Newfoundland

Crab pots line the dock in the harbour of St Lunaire-Griquet in Newfoundland, Canada waiting to be loaded onto this fishing boat.

A way of livelihood for many people in the small town of St Lunaire-Griquet, Newfoundland is crab fishing. Each day when there is no pack ice in sight, this fishing boat loads up the crab pots at St Lunaire-Griquet harbour before venturing out.

With a total population of around 1,000, many people own their boats and spend a majority of their time out on the water when it is safe for traveling. The community of St Lunaire-Griquet leads a very relaxing and calming style of life and besides the crab fishing that keeps the town alive, tourism brings in the majority of its income.In the background, houses and fishing stages line the coastline sitting atop the rocky landscape of St Lunaire-Griquet in Newfoundland, Canada. Once you leave the dock and pass over the rocks farther into town, you will find lush green hillsides that make up the beauty of this quaint town. ... continue below the picture...

St Lunaire-Griquet was once separated into two communities, one being called St Lunaire and the other Griquet, up until the 1950's when they joined forces. Both names were kept and this unique fishing town along the rocky coastline of Newfoundland, Canada is now known to the people and visitors, as St Lunaire Griquet.

Nice accommodations and restaurants are easily found while passing through St Lunaire-Griquet, giving tourists a taste of the peaceful life of this fishing town.
