Welcome news of support for our fishing industry

The Government has announced a package to support the fishing industry at this time.

More than 1,000 fishing and aquaculture businesses in England will receive direct cash grants through a fisheries support scheme announced today by Environment Secretary George Eustice and Chief Secretary to the Treasury Steve Barclay.

Up to £9million will be available for grants to eligible fishing and aquaculture businesses. A further £1million will be made available to support projects to assist fishermen to sell their catch in their local communities. This is great news and very welcome across Devon.
