Stevenson Hails Multi-Million Pound Investment Boost For Fraserburgh Harbour

Banffshire & Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson has welcomed the Scottish Government’s announcement that Fraserburgh Harbour is to benefit from a £7.5 million investment from the European Fisheries Fund. The grant will be used to deepen part of the harbour, giving access to more boats, and also to improve facilities at the site.

Designed to support investment in the fisheries sectors, the EFF programme assists with capital investment in the aquaculture, fishing and fish processing industries. Since its launch in 2007, around £60 million has been invested in Scotland’s fishing industry.

Commenting, Mr Stevenson said:

  “This is a fantastic announcement for Fraserburgh and a real boost for the fishing industry in the area. The fishing industry has had to endure enormous difficulties in recent years, but announcements like this are an important part of ensuring the industry has a sustainable, profitable future ahead of it.

“The Scottish Government is firmly committed to supporting our fishing industry and this latest announcement only serves to underline that fact. I know it is something that will be warmly welcomed by people in Fraserburgh.

“By deepening the harbour and upgrading the facilities on offer, this investment will have long term benefits for Fraserburgh for many years to come.”
