Gilbert Bay has recently been designated a Marine Protected Area (MPA) under DFO's Oceans Act.

The purpose of the Gilbert Bay MPA is to protect the genetically and geographically distinct population of Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) that make Gilbert Bay their home. The reddish-brown to golden coloured fish lives in Gilbert Bay year-round.

The designation has been a community driven initiative that began in 1998 when residents from William's Harbour and Port Hope Simpson first approached DFO about making Gilbert Bay a MPA. Congratulations to all involved! Your work will help ensure the “Golden Cod” of Gilbert Bay, along with the habitats and ecosystem which support them, remain for future generations to enjoy.
