Fisheries and Seafood Scheme opens for applications

The Marine Management Organisation has opened applications for a new grant scheme to support the fishing and seafood sector in England.


The Fisheries and Seafood Scheme will provide £6.1 million over the next 12 months with an initial focus on projects that help businesses adapt to life outside the EU’s Common Fisheries Policy as well as to recover from the impacts of COVID-19.

The Scheme will match fund projects which aim to create new opportunities for businesses, support businesses to adapt to new markets and trading conditions, support sustainable innovation, protect the environment and improve safety in the fishing industry.
