In 1952, Mr. Ernest Mailet opened a canteen on Main Street in Shediac New Brunswick to sell cooked lobster to the public during the tourist season. The canteen was a seasonal operation which coincided with our lobster fishing season. The business’ only source of revenue was counter sales under 1958, when Shediac Lobster Shop obtained it’s first fish processing license. The business would be operated under sole proprietorship for the following 10 years, where Mr. Maillet sold lobster at the retail counter to the public and packaged meat in tin cans which would be sold in larger quantities to mostly foreign customers.
In 1967, Hector Maillet, son of Ernest, joined his father in the business. In 1968, Shediac Lobster Shop was incorporated and obtained it’s charter as a limited company. In 1977, Hector Maillet, acquired a part of the business from his father and became a director of the company. In 1978, Mr. Hector Maillet became general manager.
The company today, in its third generation, has a work force of over 200 employees and is still owned in total by the Maillet family which Gilles Maillet, son of Hector, is now general manager, and his brother Serge Maillet, who now oversees production, are continuously working hard to make this reputable and innovative lobster processing company grow to satisfy customers needs and demand.
Canada currently provides more than half of the world’s supply for live and processed hard-shell Atlantic Lobster. With the landings exceeding 45 thousand metric tonnes in 2002, sustainable management practices are crucial to the future of the fishery. As well, consumers are becoming more concerned about the food they eat and want to ensure that harvesting and processing methods are conducted in an environmentally responsible manner.
The best science suggests this conservatively managed resource will sustain these yields .
Conservation and enhancement of the lobster biomass is a prime concern to the Canadian lobster industry. The Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) oversees the management of the fishery and enforces the various acts and regulations in respect to lobster harvesting. The fishery management system in Canada is regarded among the most complex and sophisticated in the world. In the case of the lobster fishery it is largely managed by effort control and seasonal openings rather than by quota. This approach is founded on Integrated Management, which is a way of managing natural resources that integrates economic, social and environmental objectives. Its goal is to ensure that development occurs in a sustainable manner by conserving biological diversity and maximizing socio-economic benefits.
