Abstract

The fishing harbor of Cap-des-Rosiers is located at the northeast end of the Gaspé Peninsula and is owned by Parks Canada. It is located within the Forillon National Park, at the mouth of the Whalen River. Two jetties, composed of Berlin walls, delineate the inner channel of the harbor and act as breakwaters. Despite the presence of these breakwaters, significant problems of agitation have been observed in the past within the harbor during storms.
