Further £1 million invested into England’s fishing industry

A £1 million grants scheme supporting innovative ways to sell fish and shellfish has awarded the first grants to projects across England.

The Domestic Seafood Supply Scheme was set up in April to help projects that will increase the sale and consumption of locally caught seafood. It was a competitive scheme, judged by an independent panel of, fishing industry, government and Marine Management Organisation representatives.

The panel today approved 13 significant projects that have the potential to deliver wider collective benefits. It is seeking further clarification on a number of other projects which will be considered at a further panel meeting on 8 June 2020.
