Wales seeks projects for EMFF grants

The Welsh government is inviting aquaculture projects to submit ideas with the potential to apply for grants under the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF).

 

 

The EMFF offers support for projects and investments relating to:

stimulating innovation in aquaculture;

driving growth in aquaculture, including through increasing production, modernisation, diversification, increasing resource efficiency and promoting closed recirculation systems;

the setting-up of sustainable small and micro aquaculture enterprises by new aquaculture farmers;

participation in ex-situ conservation and reproduction of aquatic animals.

 

The “call for project ideas” has three strands:

Strand 1 – Shellfish Production (window for submitting project ideas 1 March-12 April)

Strand 2 – Finfish Production (window for submitting project ideas 27 March-12 May)

Strand 3 – Algae and Seaweed Aquaculture Projects (window for submitting project ideas 8 May-16 June)

 

The amount of grant offered will depend on individual circumstances and will always be the minimum amount necessary to allow the project to go ahead, subject to a minimum of £2,400.

 

The maximum allocation for aquaculture projects is approximately £2.5 million.
