Grimsby, also known as Great Grimsby, is a large town and seaport in Lincolnshire, England, on the South Bank of the Humber Estuary close to where it reaches the North Sea. It is the administrative centre of North East Lincolnshire.
Grimsby developed as a major sea port on the east coast of England, hosting the largest fishing fleet in the world by the mid-20th century. The fishing industry declined dramatically after the Cod Wars. Since then the town has battled with post-industrial decline. Since the 1990s the local council has encouraged food manufacturing.
The Grimsby–Cleethorpes conurbation acts as the cultural, shopping and industrial centre for a large area of northern and eastern Lincolnshire.
People from Grimsby are called Grimbarians;
