IJmuiden : Michelin's recommendations
This town located at the end of the North Sea canal is famous for its locks. But IJmuiden is also a seaside resort and the number one fishing port in the Netherlands (and the seventh largest in western Europe). Forty or so trawlers are fitted out there for herring fishing. The market halls for auction sales are very important here.
