Newlyn Harbour :: Shared Description

Newlyn Harbour is the largest fishing port in England. The port was a major catcher of pilchard until the 1960s. Today, a few vessels have resumed pilchard fishing and use a modern version of the ring net. The largest vessels are beam trawlers. The company based in the Old Pilchard Works today are major supplies of Cornish sardines and mixed species fish.
The harbour is managed by Newlyn Pier and Harbour Commissioners.
The Ordnance Survey also use Newlyn Harbour as their datum point for "sea level".
