Our fish market was founded in 1975 by Amédée Archambault in the early beginnings of the Atwater Market. He was one of Montreal’s pioneers in the seafood business especially in the south-west area. Amédée was very active at the market for decades which allowed his kids to grow in that great community. His son Christian particularly spent a lot of time in that environment and naturally developed the same passion as his dad. Little by little, Christian took the relay to continue the family tradition with his brother and sister. Christian learned all the business workings from his dad always staying faithful to his commitment for eco-friendly and local products.
