The community of Black Tickle is located on the Island of Ponds. Black Tickle was founded in the mid-nineteenth century by a group of British seamen who had jumped ship. In 1865 naval commander, Captain Hood made a report of the population and fishing catches from Battle Harbour to Red Island in Labrador.
One of the largest establishments of that time was Black Tickle. The mainstay of the community is still fishing.
