COMMERCIAL FISHING
Along with the income from the citrus industry, was that derived from commercial fishing. One of the earliest and largest operations of this industry was owned by Mr. George W. Scobie, Sr., who sailed from New Haven to Titusville in 1882. When the Railroad came, it so advanced the progress of commercial fishing that in 1895, it was described as a factor in the fish supply of the United States. Nineteen firms maintained headquarters from Titusville to Stuart.
