This scheme delivers investments to safeguard the long-term sustainability, resilience and prosperity of the seafood sector across England.

The Fisheries and Seafood Scheme provides financial assistance for projects that support the development of the catching, processing and aquaculture sectors, and for projects that enhance the marine environment.

The scheme has recently been relaunched and will provide funding up to April 2025. The relaunch aims to deliver investment to safeguard the long-term sustainability, resilience and prosperity of the seafood sector across England.

Funding will be provided for a range of projects that deliver the following high-level outcomes:

  • A university or research institute.
  • A new entrant to the industry or unemployed individual that could benefit from knowledge/skills in fishing/aquaculture activities.

Funding levels will vary according to the activity being undertaken.
