Lunenburg is UNESCO Wold Heritage Site and well known for fishery and ship building.

First, we visited the Fisheries Museum in Lunenburg. In an interesting talk we learned a lot of details about lobsters. The heaviest ones found were about 20 kg. Depending on its size a female lobsters has between 60.000 and 80.000 eggs from which about 1% survive. Having reached a certain size lobsters don't have many predators anymore. Lobsters have a strong sense for territory and thus attack other lobsters (e.g., in a restaurant's aquarium). In the summer month they get rid of their hard shells, which they then eat. This is also the time when females are ready to mate.

Time Recorder - Even a 100 years ago working time was recorded precisely.

Lunenburg is well known for building schooners. In particular it is famous for a schooner called Bluenose, which dominated schooner racing between 1920 and 1930. Outside the museum is a schooner on display.
