Fishing boat returning home to Port Isaac, Cornwall, U.K.<br />
<br />
Port Isaac has been a working fishing village since the early C.14th, and at one time relied heavily on catching and processing pilchards.  <br />
<br />
The number of boats in the port has decreased by two thirds in the last 24 years, and the few that remain mainly catch crab and lobster.  <br />
<br />
Tourism continues to play an increasingly important role in its economy, and the fishing activity is still one of its major attractions.
