Fishing was a major factor in the growth of Breskens. At its prime, the harbour hosted 30-40 working fishing boats; today there are just seven.<br />
<br />
"Without the fishing industry Breskens would just have tourism, which is directly related to the harbour, with more yachts and a bigger yacht harbour." <br />

Jaap Albregtse, Breskens fisherman for 50 years.
