A Community MainstayA cornerstone of Yarmouth's economy from its first settlement, fishing continues to the present day to be an important aspect of life in the community. Yarmouth fishermen have always pursued a diversity of species: lobsters, scallops, cod, haddock, herring, sword fish, and other species. Because of the variety and productivity of its fish stocks, Yarmouth has not experienced the dramatic cycles in its fishery that have affected other Atlantic coast communities. Fish processing plants in the community add value to the product and create employment for local workers. For several decades in the mid-20th century Yarmouth was a popular tourist destination for a lucrative sports tuna fishing industry.
