In historic documents Engure has been mentioned in 1567, it was a large village then. It has been renowned for its port that was the basis for traditional fishing and sea-faring skills. In 1875 a navigation school was opened in Engure. The main occupation of the inhabitants still is fishing. The old port was a natural harbor in the mouth of the Melnupe river (also called Vecupe). It formed by the river flowing out of Lake Engure and running into the sea. The canal of Mersrags was dug out in 1842, in order to drain landlords' meadows and fields. Due to it, water level of the Melnupe decreased by about 4 meters, thus causing activities of the old port to cease. In 1956 the construction of an artificial port began, but was not completed. However, this unfinished port could be used by big fishing ships that worked in the Atlantic Ocean. At present the port is used by boats fishing in the Gulf of Riga and in the Baltic Sea. Every year the port gets choked with about 1 meter of sand. It is thus necessary to dredge it annually. There is a fish preserve factory "Unda" that exports its produce also to other countries. Engure port provides services for fishing boats and sailing boats. The port can be used by ships with a draught of 3.5 meters. In the port the company designs and builds yachts for export. Fish preserving, yacht building and tourism by yachts could be future businesses in the port of Engure.
