The Port au Port region's economy is based on natural resources, namely fishing. Limited forestry takes place in the unsettled areas of the interior and a small amount of subsistence farming takes place along coastal areas. Many residents of the region, particularly the communities at the eastern end near the isthmus, work in nearby Stephenville. Below are a list of local and nearby establish businesses which server our region.
