Grants

moneyThe European Fisheries Fund (EFF) programme, like the Financial Instrument for Fisheries Guidance (FIFG), will be targeted to assist with capital investment in the aquaculture, fishing and fish processing industries. The programme can also support strategic trade initiatives, fisheries-dependent communities and Scottish Government and European Community policy initiatives for the sustainable development of fisheries.

Scotland has secured an allocation of approximately €23.49 million for the Highlands and Islands and around €75.04 million for the rest of Scotland.

Eligible applicants will include individuals, companies, trade and public bodies that have a direct interest in commercial fisheries.
