Over 50 years of experience in the fishing industry
It was in 1974 that the New Brunswick family, Gagnon, settled on the Gaspé coast, more precisely in Ste-Thérèse-de-Gaspé, by founding E. Gagnon et Fils Ltée, a company specializing in the transformation snow crab.
At the turn of the 2010s, Degust Mer, a pioneering company in Quebec in the processing of lobster and rock crab, under the management of Mr. Raymond Sheehan and his sons Bill and George, acquired E. Gagnon et Fils Ltée . In 2013, Degust Mer and E. Gagnon et Fils Ltée merged while keeping the corporate identity E. Gagnon et Fils.
Since then, the company has continued to evolve. It now has 4 locations, which between them transact more than 15M pounds of shellfish and seafood per year. E. Gagnon et Fils Ltée has developed an export network under its prestigious “Gaspe Shore” brand.
