Seafood Producers Resilience Fund: beneficiaries

Applications were invited from eligible businesses for the Seafood Producers Resilience Fund. 

The Seafood Producers Resilience Fund provided support to eligible shellfish catchers and eligible shellfish and trout aquaculture undertakings. These businesses have lost access to domestic and international food markets as a result of COVID-19, and the difficult trading conditions that have resulted from the end of the transition period following the UK’s withdrawal from the EU.

All applications have now been assessed with payments made to more than 800 vessels across the country. Please find details of the grants awarded below:

Scottish Seafood Business Resilience Fund (SSBRF)

The purpose of the SSBRF was to mitigate against the impact on businesses in the seafood processing sector to help keep them solvent due to loss of market from COVID-19.

As a result of COVID-19, Scottish seafood processors lost access to valuable export markets as well as domestic food service markets. The seafood and shellfish sector was especially impacted by COVID-19. Approximately 80% of businesses were forced to cease production, largely due to the limited availability of raw materials – fish and shellfish – through the closure of the main fish markets in Scotland and associated market closures. The shellfish sector was further impacted by disruption to exports to China, prior to COVID-19, and businesses in Scotland had been struggling previously due to increased price of raw materials and increased overheads.

Seafood processors are one of the main employers in coastal communities across Scotland and thousands of livelihoods are dependent on these businesses surviving. The food and drink industry in Scotland is valued at £15 billion and the Scottish Government supports the aspiration to double that to £30 billion by 2030. We support the food and drink sector’s ambition to significantly increase production, value to the economy and employment by 2030.

All applications have now been assessed with payments made to more than 130 businesses across the country. Here are details of the grants awarded:
