President and Founder
Yvon is the founder and CEO of the Chiasson Oyster Farm Ltd. (Est. 1983). Yvon gained an interest in shellfish aquaculture (cultivation and harvest) early in life taking after his father who had his own oyster bed claim since the 1940’s. Yvon has always loved working with the water. As soon as he could enlist, he joined the Canadian Navy at the age of 17 where he served on various war ships until his discharge in 1972. Thereafter, he focused his youth working for various New Brunswick businesses from the oil giant Irving, or to the famous peat moss beds of Laméque and Miscou island where he worked as foreman. Yvon started focusing on shellfish aquaculture in the mid 1970’s until Chiasson Oyster Farm Ltd. was founded.
