On the Vatnsleysuströnd beach were many small farms, which usually were several in rural areas near the best landings. Powerful rowing was from many farms for centuries, as the fishing grounds were nearby. During the winter season, the guards from other settlements were in addition to locals. In addition to the extinction, farmers owned cows and sheep and had their livestock in the summer in the seals in Strandarheiði. In the 19th century, the number of people on the shore increased, but as landings declined, mainly due to British trawlers, the number of people decreased again. However, it changed again when the boat launch began and the fish could be retrieved further.
