If today tourism is the main economy in the area, in the past it was constituted instead by fishing and farming, which have always been the main occupations of the coast-dwellers. Still today, in fact, the remaining farmers prefer the cultivation of vinyeards, from which top quality wine is obtaine, olives from which excellent oil is deriven and lemons, cultivated in allotments and gardens. If in the year 1500 there were tunny fishing nets at Monterosso, nowadays there are few boats seen on the horizon and the women who in the “carugi” carried heavy boxes of fish on their heads. Only the anchovy fish from Monterosso has resisted, with its unmistakeable shiny grey colour and the excllent quality meats have resisted.
