As well as the development of oil from the 1970s there has been the other major economic innovation of fish farming. The direct employment provided by the oil industry is exceeded by the fish-related industries. The islands have now to look more to fish-related employment for their future. Fish farming has a notable effect in distributing employment throughout the islands. Fish processing is mainly in central locations.
