Visiting Newlyn Harbour

Protecting the environment at Newlyn Harbour

As a fishing community, it is essential that we take steps to protect the marine environment. We have put together a clear environmental management system (EMS) as part of our harbour safety procedures.

The Port Marine Safety Code also outlines the requirements for commercial fishing ports and harbours, so our environmental policy is designed to adhere to all these areas.

Safe disposal and management of waste products is also an important consideration. We have a comprehensive Waste Management Plan with guidelines for all harbour users.

The Newlyn Harbour team are always on hand to discuss any environmental concerns or queries. We’re committed to working alongside our fishing fleet in order to minimise our impact on the environment.
