Stevenson Welcomes European Funding for Fishing

Banffshire and Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson has welcomed more than £1million of funding for fishery and aquaculture projects in the Aberdeenshire and Moray.

The cash-boost includes £152,000 for Downies of Whitehills.

The fund aims to help fishermen transition to sustainable fishing, support coastal communities to diversify their economies and finance projects to create jobs.

And it also includes £400,000 to support a voluntary safety training project for fishermen in locations across Scotland.

Commenting, Stewart Stevenson MSP said:

“This seventh round of EMFF grants will provide support for projects in the North-East and across Scotland.

“Funding like this from the European Union is vital in helping support fishing communities as well as helping the supply chain reach new markets.

“I know those who have benefited along the Banffshire and Buchan Coast will be grateful and I welcome any investment which helps boost their important work.

“Unfortunately, while there is still uncertainty around Brexit, it is funding like this which will come to an end as of March 29th next year and leave communities worse off as a result.”
