A whale that has been dubbed Shelagh was seen northeast of New Brunswick and northwest of the Magdalen Islands.  After that led to a partial closure of fishing grounds near his traps, Gaudet reached out to CanFish, a free gear-lending program based in Halifax that’s operated by the Canadian Wildlife Federation.
