£500 million a year and 14 thousand jobs rely on it.
Now Cornwall's a step closer to shaping the future of its maritime economy.
Officials have backed a new plan to boost industry, protect the environment and attract visitors.
Peter Childs is managing director at A&P in Falmouth.
He says one thing is key:
" We see the dredging of the Port of Falmouth as a key thing you could do. It's the only deep water port we have in Cornwall. It's for cruise ships, it's important for ship repairs, important for all the people in the docks, all the local community, all of Cornwall"
Councillors have passed the plans. Now they go to Cabinet for a decision.
