In the early part of the 20th century, Milford Haven was the base for a very large fishing industry, where it was once possible to walk across the entire width of the docks on the decks of trawlers, but following the fishing industry’s decline in the 1950’s hard times were followed by the second oil age with the construction of large oil refineries in the 1960’s onwards. A very large Marina now occupies a part of the dock basin, with local, Spanish and Belgian trawlers also using the facilities on a daily basis.
A new liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal at South Hook has the potential to supply a significant proportion of the UK's future gas requirements.
