A fisherman pulled from Salcombe harbour has been named as 51-year-old Gary Steere.
Police say they are treating his death as non-suspicious.
Mr Steere, from Kingsbridge, is believed to have gone fishing early on Thursday and was reported missing at around midnight.
Both the Coastguard and a helicopter from Chivenor were involved in the search.
A man's body has been recovered from the water near Salcombe after a family raised the alarm a shore fisherman hadn't returned.
The all-weather and inshore lifeboats were both launched from Salcombe RNLI at 2.10am and carried out a shore line search.
Sadly a casualty was recovered from the water at 3.26am.
