A dozen fishery products' buyers operate the unloading points at the Caraquet wharf. The main products landed at the Port of Caraquet are lobster, crab, shrimp, and herring, depending on the fishing seasons of these species.
Landings are routed to numerous product processing plants in the Acadian Peninsula region. Between 6000 and 8000 tonnes of fish are landed at the Caraquet wharf and their annual value varies, depending on market conditions, between $30 and $50 million.
Near the port, fishing boat owners have access to a full range of maintenance and repair services necessary for the safe operation of their boat.
