    Nowadays, La Tabatière has a giant crab, scallop and shrimp processing plant.

    However, in the 1800s, it was the top seal fishing station on the Lower North Shore.

    Seal hunters/fishers used underwater nets with an opening in the middle surrounded by a maze of ropes to catch Greenland seals.
