Cabinet Secretary announces support to help Welsh fishermen access millions of pounds of European funding


Wales’ fishermen and coastal communities will be able to access £60,000 of Welsh Government funding to help them make applications for millions of pounds of European funding, Cabinet Secretary for Environment and Rural Affairs, Lesley Griffiths has announced.
The Cabinet Secretary said: “The European Maritime and Fisheries Fund is worth between £14m – £16m to fishing and aquaculture industries in Wales. It goes a long way in helping us achieve our objective to develop a vibrant, competitive and sustainable fishing sector.
“The outcome of the EU referendum last year and the subsequent guarantee by the Treasury to honour commitments made until the UK leaves the EU, means it is important Wales maximises the take up of this fund.”
