Aquaculture and marine fish-farming

European Fisheries Fund

Apply for funding

We have formed a Fisheries Local Action Group which considers applications and decides how the funding will be allocated at a local area, this includes:

  • Representatives from the main fishing communities and the fisheries sectors in the area
  • Representatives from the main public sector bodies

You can read our fisheries development strategy which highlights the entire scope of what the group proposes for our area.

In Highland we encourage applications for projects that will support measures to:

  • Promote the strengthening and competitiveness of fisheries areas
  • Restructure and redirect economic activities
  • Diversify activities
  • Add value
  • Support small fisheries and tourism-related infrastructure
  • Protect the environment in fisheries areas
  • Promote inter-regional and trans-national co-operation
