Backing the Scottish fishing industry

The Prime Minister has announced a £23 million fund for the Scottish fishing industry.

  • The UK government has been working closely with the fishing industry to address the concerns they have raised recently and we will be setting out further details about this scheme in due course.
  • This funding comes on top of the £100 million package to help the fishing community take advantage of the full opportunities being an independent coastal state provides. The UK government has also provided the Scottish Government with nearly £200 million to help minimise disruption and guarantee business readiness now that we have left the EU.
