The port of Smögen began to be used as early as the 16th century, and its importance grew as the years went by. During the last herring period (1877-1905), the port developed into a very important centre for fishing exports, with extensive trade in Europe. Warehouses and salt works sprang up at the bridges and many of them still stand today. After this period, the port increasingly developed into a bathing area and guest harbour. Today, the port of Smögen has the status of one of the most popular ports in the Nordic region. It is also home to one of Sweden's few fish auctions, which is well worth a visit.
