Is grant funding available for your harbour ?

Fit-for-Purpose harbours project

The North & East Coast IFG has instigated our Fit-for-Purpose harbours project to find out what all the commercial inshore fishing harbours in the region need by way of new facilities and improvements to make them fit-for-purpose for the foreseeable future.

This project responds to lots of reports from inshore fishermen that their harbour lacked facilities and needed repairs or replacement of existing facilities.

Many harbours have the same set of needs and a 'shopping list' (see below ) has been created to help fishermen decide between themselves what the may require for their harbour. Completed shopping lists should be emailed to the NECRIFG Chairman Iain Maddox who will collate responses and initiate a funding application.

if you are in the NECRIFG contact Iain Maddox here by email maddox.iain@gmail.com

Fishermen in other parts of Scotland reading this could take their shopping list to their local FLAG, contact information on the Marine Scotland website

Dunbar Fishermen's Association were recently awarded a 100% grant for a chiller/freezer unit and ice-making machine.
