The funding can assist the industry with the adoption or adaptation of market-ready clean technologies for aquaculture, wild capture harvesting and seafood processing operations.

Applications will be accepted on an ongoing basis, note however that a project proposal review session will be taking place in the coming weeks as part of the initial application intake for 2019/20, please refer to the following dates should you wish to submit a proposal for the initial intake:
