Today St Andrews harbour is home to a fleet of around a dozen small fishing vessels, landing high quality shellfish from around the nearby shores, which are sold locally, nationally and exported. A small, but growing, number of pleasure craft are also based within the sheltered waters of the Inner basin.
The Harbour is managed by St Andrews Harbour Trust, which subsequent to its reconstitution has greater operating flexibility and acts to ensure that: the maintenance of the harbour is kept up to an acceptable level; facilities are adequate and regularly maintained; use of the harbour is controlled in a safe and efficient manner and any developments are in line with Trust’s directives. The Trust aims to improve and promote St Andrews Harbour and its surrounding area to the benefit of resident and visiting harbour users and the local community. – St Andrews Harbour Trust
