Controversial plans to bring in super liners to Falmouth take a step closer.
Test dredging of the harbour has got the go ahead.
That is despite fears about the environmental impact.
Dave Ellis from the Harbour Commissioners reckons 850 jobs hang on the scheme: "With dredging, we're talking in excess of eight hundred jobs created in the next few years and many more jobs in the future. So, if we don't carry out this dredging, the port won't close immediately but the business will pass us by.
"There's a real opportunity to future-proof Falmouth for opportunities we don't even know about yet. All of the issues around the renewable energy sector, wave hub, wave power, we need a port to run that and this is the port it should be based in".
