The climate of Saint Pierre and Miquelon
Saint-Pierre and Miquelon is a French overseas district consisting of eight islands south of the coast of Newfoundland in Canada. The islands have been French territory since the beginning of the nineteenth century, after a number of changes of power occurred between the French and the British. Saint-Pierre and Miquelon is currently the only remaining possession of France. Nice fact is that, geographically speaking, the region is situated near the North American continent, but actually officially belongs to Europe. The archipelago counts less than ten-thousand inhabitants who mainly have to live by the fishing-industry. The islands are hardly suited for agriculture and serious industry is not to be found in Saint-Pierre and Miquelon. Because the catch of cod is the most important source of income of the local inhabitants the future is faced with fear. This is because the amount of fish, especially cod, in the oceans rapidly decreases due to overfishing. The local government therefore tries to stimulate other sources of income such as crab fishing, tourism and fish breeding.
Saint-Pierre and Miquelon has a cool sea climate with reasonably cool winters, a cold spring and fairly agreeable summers. In the islands there is often a rather stiff wind, which, in combination with the temperatures, sometimes causes less agreeable living-circumstances. In the spring the wind somewhat dies down, through which there is an increasing chance of fog. It is not until late in the summer that it gets fairly sunny in Saint-Pierre and Miquelon.
