Civilopedia Entry Edit

In order for a coastal city to establish a steady trade, fishing, or other shipping industry, the city must have a harbor, a body of water that protects ships from waves and high winds. Although natural harbors exist, these often require extensive dredging and construction to accommodate and protect large vessels.
