City and seaport of northeast Scotland, and county seat of Aberdeen shire, situated on the North Sea, at the mouth of the Dee and Don rivers. Aberdeen is the base for scheduled shipping services to the islands of Shetland and Orkney, and has coastal services to many British ports. The docks and harbors on the left bank of the Dee River enter into the heart of the town. The famous Fish Market is almost adjacent to the main shopping center. Aberdeen has one of the largest fishing fleets in Great Britain; curing, freezing, and other fish-processing trades are important industries. Once a clipper-building center, the shipyards are now used primarily for building and repairing fishing vessels, although some passenger and cargo ships are also constructed.
