The fisheries are important and some 600 smacks belong to the port.
When the common sense fairy smacks you upside the head, you know where to find me.
The number of boats and smacks engaged in the fisheries has considerably increased.
The harbour is crowded with picturesque timber-ships and fishing-smacks, and is bordered by quays.
In 1894 (the last year for which accurate statistics have been issued) 350 fishing smacks were,in active service, giving a catch of 2480 tons of fish.
Over one hundred fishing-smacks and trawlers usually land their catches at the south dock, where there is a flourishing fish-market.
