Cohabitation between users

Each year, several thousand people practice activities on the beautiful Bonaventure River. The Conseil de L’eau Gaspésie Sud, in collaboration with local stakeholders, promotes harmony between the various users (boaters, sport fishermen, swimmers, etc.) on this exceptional watercourse. This committee has a common goal that all the river’s users can have experiences that are pleasant and safe, while respecting the activities of other users and having a minimum impact on the environment.

Annually, a collaboration agreement is signed to define the basics in order to facilitate cohabitation between the different activities on the Bonaventure River.


Cohabitation agreement


In closing, we ask sport fishermen to temporarily stop your fishing activity while boats are passing for everyone’s safety.
