Port Isaac is a small fishing village on the Atlantic coast of north Cornwall. The pilchard fishery began here before the 16th century and in 1850 there were 49 registered fishing boats and four fish cellars. Fishermen still work from the Platt, landing their catches of fish, crab and lobsters. The historic core of the village was designated a Conservation Area in 1971. Port Isaac is home to the group Fisherman's Friends, sea-shanty singers.
