Latest Round of funding under the UK Seafood Fund’s Infrastructure Scheme is open for applications
The latest round of funding under the UK Seafood Fund’s Infrastructure Scheme is now open for applications. This round will focus on modernising the fleet through engine replacements and is open until midday on 31 October 2023 (or until Defra has allocated all the funding).
Vessels in the small-scale coastal fleet can bid for up to £40,000 to trial hybrid and electric engines, and up to £20,000 to fund replacement petrol and diesel engines that are more environmentally friendly.
