Dates of existence



A meeting of the fishermen in the communities of Mt. Buchanan, Belle River, Flat River, and Point Prim, Prince Edward Island was held in the Mt. Buchanan school on the 18 August 1836, where a presentation on the PEI Fishermen's Union was given. That night it was decided to form a union of fishermen in the area that would fall within the provincial PEI Fishermen's Union. On the 16 February 1937, fifteen fishermen from Flat River and surrounding areas appeared before Angus McLean, Justice of the Peace for Queen's County, with the desire to form "Station Four" within the PEI Fishermen's Union. Incorporated on the 24 June 1938, the mandate of Station Four was to assist in the protection and conservation of the fisheries, to procure information as to the best methods of curing and preparing fish for markets, to take united action upon matters arising in respect to the welfare of the fishermen and the regulations pertaining to the fisheries and to make representation and furnish information to the proper authorities upon all matters of interest to fishermen.
