A boost for Britain's fishermen
Today the government announced a £20 million funding boost for our fishing industry, upgrading infrastructure and building a resilient sector for the future.
- Britain's world-class fishing and seafood sectors make a valuable contribution to our economy – but we must continue to ensure these excellent schemes have the financial backing to succeed.
- That is why we are backing them with a £20 million funding boost through the UK Seafood Fund to modernise infrastructure across the sector, including upgrading facilities for popular British fish like Scottish salmon and Cornish sardines alongside money to bring aging docks back to life.
- This funding boost comes as a further £30 million has been made available today, ensuring seafood businesses throughout the supply-chain are well-equipped to keep pace with increasing demand at home and abroad.
