The ZEC Jeannotte is a zone d'exploitation contrôlée (Controlled harvesting area), located in Lac-Édouard, in the administrative region of Mauricie, in Quebec, in Canada.

The "Association de chasse et pêche Batiscan" (English: Hunting and fisching Association of the Batiscan river) is managing the zec.

Southern territory of the ZEC offers a mountain bike circuit and a marked snowmobile trail. These trails allow to link Rivière-à-Pierre and La Tuque via Portneuf Wildlife Reserve and Zec de la Bessonne.

The territory of the ZEC Jeannotte is located thirty kilometers (direct line) at east of La Tuque. It shares its boundaries with the Zec de la Rivière-Blanche in the southwest, the Portneuf Wildlife Reserve in south and Zec de la Bessonne in the east. The territory of the ZEC is shared by the municipalities of La Tuque and Lac-Édouard.

In terms of hydrography, all the ZEC is in the basin of the Batiscan River. The Zec is traversed by two rivers: the Batiscan river and the Jeannotte. These rivers are also very popular with fans who go down the river by canoe or kayak. The Zec includes 119 lakes.
