Marine Management Organisation Guidance: 18 January 2016

Information about the available funding from the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) scheme and how to apply. The EMFF scheme in England will be opened for applications on a phased basis. The first phase opens over €33m of the €46m available budget and will provide funding for:

  • assisting the fisheries sectors with the implementation of the reformed CFP including the Landing Obligation
  • improving health and safety on fishing vessels
  • improving the added value or quality of fish caught including use of unwanted catches
  • investments in fishing ports, landing sites, auction halls and shelters
  • processing of fishery and aquaculture products
  • investments in aquaculture
  • Fisheries Local Action Groups (FLAG)

You can apply for funds to support the fishing and maritime sectors under the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF). EMFF follows the European Fisheries Fund (EFF) and will run until 2020 or until all available money has been allocated. The Marine Management Organisation (MMO) will accept applications for EMFF funding from early 2016, but you can learn all about the scheme and prepare your application now.
