Minor Fisheries' History

Commercial fishing in this area dates back to the early 1820s establishing its importance as a major industry for Dunnville and Port Maitland. The natural harbour created by the Grand River along with the completion of the Feeder Canal which opened a passage way to the rest of the Great Lakes and beyond was an ideal location for the fledgling industry. With the abundance of a variety of fresh water fish species, the Grand River fishing business was the precursor to the modern Lake Erie commercial fishing industry and by the first half of the 1900s there were more than 50 fish tugs and fishing boats operating from Port Maitland. Since the 1950s, however, one family has been synonymous with fishing in this area...The Minor Family!
