Charles Robin, formidable businessman
Born on the island of Jersey, Charles Robin was raised in a family of cod traders. In 1765, with his brothers and several partners, he founded Robin, Pipon & Co. (later, Charles Robin & Co.). The company’s facilities in Paspébiac, managed by Robin himself, became the centre of the commercial cod fishing industry.
