Poissonnerie Blanc-Sablon was first started in 2001 by President William Beaudoin. At the time there were 6 employees and roughly 200 clients. For the first year 80,000 lbs of various products were sold. Since then, many changes have been made at the Poissonnerie. In 2005, the Poissonnerie started expanding to offer more products to more clients; in 2006 and 2007 new cooling chambers were installed and in 2008 a storage unit was built. The Poissonnerie also invested in the purchase of equipment in order to vacuum seal products. Currently, the Poissonnerie has more than 800 clients locally, as well as clients from across Labrador and Quebec.
