The stock structure for American Lobster across this region is uncertain. The Department of Fisheries and Oceans manages and assesses the Southern Gulf of St. Lawrence as one unit using a series of indicators to measure stock status and for regulatory purposes (DFO 2023). These are further divided into Lobster Fishing Areas (LFAs). This profile examines the Southern Gulf of St. Lawrence region, LFAs 23-26.
