Black Tickle is a fishing community located on an island on the southeast coast of Labrador. It was founded in the mid nineteenth century by a group of British seamen who had jumped ship. In 1865 Captain Hood reported on the population and fishing catches from Battle Harbour to Red Bay Island in Labrador and one of the largest establishments of that time was Black Tickle. Today the community is still dependent upon the fishery as its primary source of employment but, instead of cod, the current resource is snow crab.
