Ice & Water:
Ice is supplied by private contractor (W. Stevenson & Sons) from a plant very near the fish market. The plan has a capacity of 70 tonnes of flake and crushed ice per day. The Cornish Ice Company also supplies a number of boats. Their capacity is in the region of 90 tonnes per day. Fresh water is also available on the quays.
W. Stevenson & Sons provide a number of fuelling points at the berth located on the North Pier. Other companies deliver fuel by road tanker. Falmouth Oil Supplies also maintain a fuel barge, moored in the harbour.
