Support for Ports and Harbours Update
Funding for ports and harbours was announced as part of a package of support by Fisheries Secretary Fergus Ewing on 3 February. Due to the high level of demand for the fund, the initial £1m was increased to £1.8m.
Ports and harbours are an essential part of the infrastructure for the seafood sector and have a value of £186 million. The latest figures on EU vessel landings into Scotland can be found in the Scottish Sea Fisheries Statistics 2019.
The Seafood Producers Resilience Fund is still open for aquaculture businesses.
