Gulf Nova Scotia - The sector takes in the Nova Scotia coast on the Gulf of St. Lawrence side, from the New Brunswick border to Bay St. Lawrence on the northern tip of Cape Breton.  Harbours in this area are not in use in winter, as the Gulf of St. Lawrence is covered in ice. This area is home to a major inshore fishery, with a fleet mainly made up of vessels of under 50 feet. Other larger vessels are used in the mid-shore snow crab and herring fisheries based in Cheticamp, the largest harbour in the sector. Vessels from other provinces that come into the sector to fish for crab spend a considerable amount of time at this harbour. Whale watching enterprises are increasing in numbers in certain locations of this sector. In this sector there are 30 harbour authorities managing 33 Small Craft Harbours sites.
