As the principal freight port for Shetland, Lerwick plays a vital role in the islands' commercial infrastructure. It was founded in the seventeenth century as a herring and white fish seaport, and still thrives as a fishing and ferry port. The harbour is also busy with commercial vessels supporting the offshore oil industry.
