Moose Harbour is typical of the many small wharves that dot the shoreline of Nova Scotia. They range from individual docks to collections of 6 or 8 fishing vessels (mostly Cape Islanders). There are also a few massive wharves, such as Dennis Point in Pubnico, or the wharf at Digby, which show the true scale and importance of the fishing industry here in the province. Many of the boats are designed for lobster fishing, with wide, flat decks for carrying traps. But there also scallop boats, crabbers, trawlers and seiners.
