The Fisheries and Seafood Scheme (FaSS) has reopened for grant applications. An additional £2 million of funding has been made available to support England’s seafood sector.

The scheme is administered by Marine Management Organisation (MMO) on behalf of the Defra and is designed to help the fisheries and seafood sector in a number of ways. Health and safety of fishing crews, the value and quality of fisheries products, modifications that improve the energy efficiency of vessels, mitigating climate change, and innovations that support the longevity and diversification of the seafood sector all come within the aims of the scheme.

FaSS has award over £27 million to over 1,300 fisheries projects in England since it opened in May 2021. The additional funding provides an opportunity for further projects to receive funding over the next year.

Funding is being granted on a first come first served basis. Once all funding has been allocated, the scheme will close.

All projects funded by FaSS need to be completed by the time the scheme closes on 31 March 2025.
