Commercial fishing and processing has been a big part of the Oregon Coast's history since the 1860s. Canneries packaged and shipped fresh-caught salmon in Astoria, Tillamook Bay, Yaquina Bay, and Gold Beach. Commercial fishing became one of the top industries in Oregon by the turn of the 20th century, supplying the world with bounties of crab, black cod, halibut, albacore, pink shrimp, rockfish, and, of course, salmon to distributors and fresh seafood markets on the West Coast and beyond.
Astoria, by 1881 the largest town on the Oregon coast, had become the center of the canning industry which continued booming until the mid-twentieth century. There were 39 salmon canneries along the Columbia River and other coastal rivers at the height of the canning industry.
