Economy (1)


  The economy is dependent on animal farming, fishing and tourism. Animal farming is conducted “free range” and therefore produce is small in quantity but of exceptional quality.
  There are some ten professional fishermen earning a living from the waters surrounding the island although in recent years fish farming has been a successful addition.
  As has occurred with the other Dodecanese islands, visitors to the island have steadily increased, making tourism a main source of income for the economic development of the island.
