The Community of Black Tickle is located on the Island of Ponds in a cove called Salmon Bight. On the other side of the Bight is the Community of Domino. Both Communties share resources such a medical, schooling and airport.
Today the community is still dependent upon the fishery as its primary source of employment, but instead of cod, the current resource is snow crab. These two communities have no road connection to the outside and are therefore dependent upon coastal boats during the summer and year round air servcie.
