Port of Chornomorsk, or Marine Trade Port of Chornomorsk (Ukrainian: Морський торговельний порт Чорноморськ, Morskyi torhovelnyi port Chornomorsk) is a port in the city of Chornomorsk, Ukraine. It is located on the north-western shore of Black Sea at Sukhyi Estuary, to the south-west from Odessa.

Marine Trade Port of Chornomorsk is a universal seaport. Across the estuary in the village of Burlacha Balka is located the Illichivsk Fishing Seaport and the Illichivsk ferry, while further inland is located the ship maintenance factory.

The city, Chornomorsk, where the port is located used to be named Illichivsk; due to decommunization laws Chornomorsk gained its current name in February 2016.[1][2][3][4][5]
