Sean Connick TD, Minister of State at the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food today announced €1.13 million in grant-aid for Irish Seafood Processing companies under the Seafood Processing Business Development Scheme, and a further €623,620 for aquaculture companies under the Commercial Aquaculture Development Scheme. This represents a total investment of €1.75 million in 15 seafood processing and aquaculture projects.  Both schemes form part of the Seafood National Programme 2007-2013, funded under the National Development Plan 2007-2013. Development of both of these areas, seafood processing and aquaculture, are key elements in the recently published 2020 Food Harvest Report.

The Seafood Processing Business Development Scheme is aimed at SME’s who have solid business plans focused on adding value to Irish seafood products on both domestic and overseas markets. The qualifying projects all exemplify dynamic ideas in new product development and innovation.  Grant-assistance of up to 25% on capital expenditure required for the production of value added products and for improvements in processes and quality beyond legislative requirements is being provided.

The Commercial Aquaculture Development Scheme is aimed at assisting fish and shellfish farmers to invest in their businesses.  The approved projects are examples of companies that are looking to improve their efficiency through technology transfer and have a strong focus on quality, matched with the demands of the market. The measure provides for grant aid of up to 40% of eligible capital expenditure.

Coastal Notes Coastal Notes covers a broad spectrum of stories, events and developments in which some can be quirky and local in nature, while other stories are of national importance and are on-going, but whatever they are about, they need to be told.

Stories can be diverse and they can be influential, albeit some are more subtle than others in nature, while other events can be immediately felt. No more so felt, is firstly to those living along the coastal rim and rural isolated communities. Here the impact poses is increased to those directly linked with the sea, where daily lives are made from earning an income ashore and within coastal waters.

The topics in Coastal Notes can also be about the rare finding of sea-life creatures, a historic shipwreck lost to the passage of time and which has yet many a secret to tell. A trawler's net caught hauling more than fish but cannon balls dating to the Napoleonic era.

Also focusing the attention of Coastal Notes, are the maritime museums which are of national importance to maintaining access and knowledge of historical exhibits for future generations.

Equally to keep an eye on the present day, with activities of existing and planned projects in the pipeline from the wind and wave renewables sector and those of the energy exploration industry.

In addition Coastal Notes has many more angles to cover, be it the weekend boat leisure user taking a sedate cruise off a long straight beach on the coast beach and making a friend with a feathered companion along the way.

In complete contrast is to those who harvest the sea, using small boats based in harbours where infrastructure and safety poses an issue, before they set off to ply their trade at the foot of our highest sea cliffs along the rugged wild western seaboard.

It's all there, as Coastal Notes tells the stories that are arguably as varied to the environment from which they came from and indeed which shape people's interaction with the surrounding environment that is the natural world and our relationship with the sea.
