Supporting Britain's fishermen (and women)

The government has announced the first investment from the £100 million UK Seafood Fund, supporting the UK fishing industry now and for the future.

  • The fishing industry is pivotal to the wellbeing of coastal communities and we are determined to support its productivity and sustainability. 
  • That is why the government launched the £100 million Seafood Fund, and fishing businesses across the UK will now have access to £24 million of investment to develop technology, trial new gear and support world-class research to improve the productivity and long-term sustainability of the industry. 
  • This support for the fishing industry is helping us to level up coastal communities across the country as we build back better from the pandemic.
