Our Community

Dynamic & Diverse

As well as the comprehensive range of facilities and services that we provide to the UK fishing industry, it is the diversity of our harbour community that adds to Newlyn’s vibrancy.

From fishermen and fish merchants to engineers, electricians and entrepreneurial business start-ups, all of human life – as well as up to 40 different species of fish! – are here.

We are also proud to host the National Lobster Hatchery’s satellite module that nurtures juvenile lobsters until they are ready for release into the sea, as well as the Newlyn Archive and the Penlee Lifeboat Station, both of which are open to visitors.

With beach cleans, raft races, Christmas lights and the Newlyn Fish Festival, there is always plenty going on.
