First commercial salmon cannery opens in Annieville. The Annieville Cannery was opened on the Fraser River across from New Westminster by Alexander Loggie and Co. There was also a slattery on site for processing lower quality fish which were fish that was covered in salt and/or soaked in a salt-water brine as a way of preserving it. In their first operating season, they exported 30,000 1-pound cans to England.
