In the 1960s the Deusto Canal was excavated, the shore of Deusto was to become an artificial island with facilities for the Port of Bilbao. The project was abandoned before its end when it became obvious that bringing more ships to the city would be impractical. The neighbourhood Zorrozaurre then became a separate, artificially created peninsula.
As a rural municipality Deusto produced tomatoes of local renown, and its residents are still nicknamed tomateros.
