For hundreds of years Great Yarmouth was a major fishing port, dependent mainly on herring, but the fishing industry suffered a steep decline and has now all but disappeared. In the 1960s the discovery of oil in the North Sea led to a flourishing oil rig supply industry and today local businesses service offshore natural gas rigs. More recently, the development of “green” energy sources, especially offshore wind power, has created further opportunities for support services. A wind farm of 30 generators is within sight of the town.
