Daily Life in New France ( french/ daily_life_in_new_france.htm)
Jean-Baptiste was a Pecheur.
The pêcheur d'anguille, or eel fisherman, was a person who caught eels either for personal consumption or for sale. Eel fishing was practiced mainly in the St. Lawrence, but also in the Richelieu River, Lake St. Pierre, near L'Islet and Kamouraska.

Fishing was the first resource of early inhabitants, as they waited for their land to be cleared and start producing wheat.

Exploring the Ancestry of Jean-Baptiste MOREAU: Events, Pictures, and Documents

MOREAU – Contraction of Morineau, nickname given to an individual with a more or less dark complexion, in reference to the Moorish people, encountered during the crusades. Also, from the Latin 'Maurellus', from Maurus which means the Mauritanian, again the nickname of a dark-skinned individual. Finally, can come from the name of several localities in France.

Jean Moreau was born around 1661 in Parthenay, Deux-Sèvres, France. Son of Jean Moreau and Catherine Leroux, he married Marie-Anne Rodrigue, daughter of Jean Rodrigue and Anne Roy, on February 18, 1692 in Quebec. From their union were born 10 children. He settled in Quebec, then in Beauport. In 1699, with other inhabitants, he agreed to settle in Mont-Louis. This business turned out badly and, a year later, he returned to Quebec. He finally settled in Rimouski, where, in 1726, he mainly occupied himself with fishing. It is even called a navigator. He died on August 25, 1727 and was buried the next day in Rimouski.
