To all Fishermen, 
To the fishing community; 
We live in extraordinary times and in keeping with government announcements made last night Dunbar harbour is closed to all but essential and safety related marine traffic. This will be enforced by on duty harbour staff with police assistance if necessary. Everyone must stay at home to help stop the spread of coronavirus. 
You can only leave your home: 
  • to shop for basic essentials – only when you really need to
  • to do one form of exercise a day – such as a run, walk or cycle, alone or with other people you live with
  • for any medical need – for example, to visit a pharmacy or deliver essential supplies to a vulnerable person
  • to travel to and from work – but only where this is absolutely necessary
All leisure users have been instructed to stay away from the harbour in keeping with government instructions. Leisure users should follow those instructions except to check their boat if necessary and leave the harbour keeping social distance. 
We understand Fishermen will need to check their vessels and will continue to operate as self employed businesses. We ask that you take action as employers to ensure appropriate social distancing while we await further government guidelines for employers and business. 
Harbour staff will do one daily patrol of the harbour and remain on call. If any fishermen do have any concerns about tourists or any other people behaving irresponsibly at the harbour please call the Harbour Master.
