Excerpt from The Canadian Fisherman, Vol. 10: Official Organ of the Canadian Fisheries Association; January 1923 Dec; 1923

Cod and herring are the most prolific fisheries; they produce six-sevenths of the total annual volume of fish. Certainly not more than ten percent of the cod goes into local consumption, and of the herring only a fractional proportion is used locally. To resort to actual statistics: During 1921 Quebec produced in her maritime waters about pounds of fish, of which were codand herring. The most liberal calculation discloses that only 000 of this quantity was consumed in Canada and the adjacent American markets. The fresh varieties, other than cod and herring, entering into the volume con sumed thus are all seasonal, such as mackerel, smelts, lobsters and salmon which the markets absorb with avidity while they are yet in season. Hence they do not require freezing accommodation, although cold storage facilities at some fixed centre might be of value. As a bait preserver the freezer is valuable, but here there enters the problem of inducing fishermen to utilize frozen bait. Similar institutions in the Maritime Pro vinces, which were fostered by federal authorities, have proved their worth in providing a steady supply of bait but otherwise have been of no account.

Possibly it is not generally known that the federal government for many years maintained a policy of subsidizing fish freezers on the Atlantic Coast. From the inception of that policy early in the century until 1909 seventy odd freezers were built, of which seven teen were located within the province of Quebec. Only one of these latter, that at Bonaventure River, operat ed for the full bonus period of five years. One at Anse la Barbe Operated for four years, several of them for three years, five for two years and three for only one year.
