In 1987, the Department of Fisheries and Oceans distributed a questionnaire to the 308 mackerel (Scomber scombrus) fishermen with seining licences from the southern Gulf of St. Lawrence in order to characterize their fishing activities. The percentage of questionnaires returned was 24.7 %. Other species exploited by mackerel fishermen include lobster, cod, and herring. Presence of mackerel in the area of activity of fishermen in the main factor determining fishing trips for mackerel. Economic considerations (mostly low prices) play an important role in the fishermen's lack of interest toward this resource. The largest landings per fisherman apparently occur in western Prince Edward Island. The main uses for mackerel landings are in decreasing order of importance plant processing, bait for personal use, and bait sold to plants.
