Marine Fund Scotland

The 2022-23 Marine Fund Scotland is now open to applications. The application guidance notes and a revised business case template are available on the links below. Applications should be submitted on the Maritime and Fisheries Fund e-system.

The second year of the Marine Fund Scotland delivers on Scotland’s Blue Economy Vision which was published earlier in 2022. No applications should be submitted prior to consideration of the revised detailed guidance notes and the new business case template.

The funding can support eligible individuals, businesses, organisations and communities to deliver projects which contribute to an innovative and sustainable marine economy, reducing carbon emissions and supporting coastal communities. The guidance notes will set out the specific eligibility and assessment criteria that projects have to meet to be considered for funding.
