Organisations that can provide training to people working in the UK seafood industry may apply, including public bodies (trust ports, local authority ports and public charities), small to medium-sized enterprises, fishermen’s associations, private trusts, foundations, social enterprises, trade associations, and officially recognised producer organisations.

The deadline for applications has been extended by one month, to 19 May 2023.
