Grants For More Than 100 Additional Fisheries Local Action Group Projects

#Fishing - Marine Minister Michael Creed has announced details of grants worth €1.5 million under Ireland’s European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) to more than 100 coastal-based projects.

The grants support a total investment of €2.4 million in these additional 106 projects within Ireland’s seven Fisheries Local Action Groups (FLAGs).

“The FLAGs initiative is proving a fantastic success and the grants awarded to the 247 local coastal projects to date in 2018 will be a hugely important boost to these coastal communities,” Minister Creed said.

Successful projects included investments in micro seafood enterprises, marine tourism and marine leisure projects, heritage projects, small harbour facilities, and environmental and training projects.

The grants are co-funded by the Government and the European Union under the EMFF Operational Programme for the seafood sector.

Details on the FLAG scheme and on how to apply can be found on the Bord Iascaigh Mhara website.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
