A further £3.5 million to help large sea fishing vessels brings the total made available to the seafood industry by the Scottish Government from new and existing funds to £22.5 million.
The latest scheme will provide capped payments of up to £21,370 per vessel to businesses with a vessel over 12 metres landing shellfish such as crab, lobster, scallop and langoustine to help them meet fixed costs like insurance. It will also provide up to £42,740 for businesses operating more than one vessel. Amounts will be graduated by fleet segment and length category.
