Fisheries and Seafood Scheme: Panel Dates Announced in England.

The Marine Management Organisation has confirmed the first panel dates for the re-launched Fisheries and Seafood Scheme and is inviting applications from the industry.

The grant scheme – administered by MMO on behalf of Defra – was relaunched in April to help support the long-term sustainability, resilience, and prosperity of the seafood sector across England. It will deliver £6m per year in funding until April 2025, providing long term investment to the sector.

The panels for 2022 are expected to take place week commencing 22 August and week commencing 28 November. Applications to be considered at these sessions should be completed and submitted to MMO by 1 July and 7 October respectively.
