Presentation of Chuinard

Rémy Chuinard, a shipowner from Granville, was involved in the "grand fishing" on the Grand Banks of Newfoundland; he is credited the introduction of steam trawlers in Granville.
The Almanach du Centenaire, 1816-1916, issued for the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the reincorporation of Saint-Pierre-et- Miquelon to France, includes several mentions of Chuinard. The Rémy Chuinard company owned buildings and moorings in Saint-Pierre, where it was managed by Rémy Chuinard Fils (Jr.). Two ships were registered, the Normandie and the Sans-Gêne. Chuinard was member of the Cercle de Commerce et de l'Industrie and President of the Syndicat des Armateurs à la Grande Pêche.
