Port Mouton (pronounced Ma-tune) got its name from the explorer DeMonts when a sheep fell overboard from one of his ships and had to be rescued.

DeMonts and Champlain spent a month here in 1604 exploring the surrounding area.

Today Central Port Mouton still has two operating fish plants and an active government wharf where you will find a fleet of colourful fishing boats and colourful characters.
