Closure of Sea-fisheries & Aquaculture measures
Due to unprecedented demand, the funding for Sea fisheries (UP1) and Aquaculture (UP2) is almost fully committed, we are now closed to new applications under these measures until the middle of 2019. This will allow us to access the current situation regarding committed funds & any other available funding.
Any remaining funding in Sea fisheries funding will be made available to safety, new entrants and innovative research and development, we hope to be able to re-open all aquaculture measures. Remaining funds are likely to be heavily oversubscribed, so we will not be able to fund all projects, we will update in the new year once the funding picture is clearer.
The processing and marketing measures are not under so much pressure, applications can be submitted at any time, and we will hold a further round at the start of next year.
