Last July, scientists from the Maurice Lamontagne Institute (MLI) in Mont‑Joli boarded the CCGS Leim for a 20-day mission aimed at documenting the state of the snow crab population in the St. Lawrence Estuary. The Fisheries and Oceans Canada team had a busy schedule ahead of them. For the first time, this demographic monitoring research on snow crab included an important biodiversity and environment component.
