Meteghan, Nova Scotia

The Village of Meteghan is centered on the fishing industry. The local wharf is home to scallop draggers, trawlers, herring seiners, and ground fish and lobster boats. The A.F. Theriault Shipyard in Meteghan River is one of the largest shipyards in Atlantic Canada. As a result of Meteghan’s ocean-oriented lifestyle, rum running became rampant here during the 1920s. There is even a “Smuggler’s Cove,” so named as its ocean-carved cave was a favorite location to hide contraband during prohibition.
