Important Update from the Fisheries & Seafood Scheme (23/Feb/2024)

The Fisheries and Seafood Scheme is now open to deliver its final year of funding, providing valuable grants to match-fund projects over the next year. Up to £6 million is available through this scheme to support projects in a variety of areas, including:

  • Health and safety
  • Processing and production
  • Partnerships
  • Research
  • Business diversification.


Applications can be submitted for smaller projects throughout the year, while projects valued at £150,000 or more will need to be submitted in the spring to be reviewed by a panel.

Applications can be submitted now and will be approved on a first-come, first-served basis until the budget is exhausted. All claims and payments must be made between April 2024 and 31 March 2025.

Port and harbour infrastructure projects should now apply to schemes under the national UK Seafood Fund.
