Fishing industry funding opportunity - UK Fishing Animateur

We have recently launched the UK Fishing Animateur project 

which is in place to support fishing communities, businesses, harbours and fishermen’s associations to understand and unlock grant funding with a focus on the following themes: 

  • Improving health and safety (onboard vessels and personal safety) 
  • Improving harbour infrastructure 
  • Adding value to catch
The website contains a series of short videos, downloadable PDF self help guides taking you through the MMO grant e-system step by step, as well as a range of images highlighting typical grant funded projects to build ideas and inspiration. The website also has a very easy to use function to start a project idea, which collects the basic information to kick start an idea and allow an Aniamteur to being turning your idea into reality.  So please take a look, familiarise yourself with it and then promote to people you think this would benefit.
