A report of the first elver that have been captured in the St. Lawrence Gulf, away from the river mouth, is presented. The 2 elvers were caught on 12 May 1978. They measured 53 and 36 mm respectively, and as no dorsal or mediolateral pigmentation was present it was affirmed that they had not yet reached Stubberg's VIA1 stage of maturity.
