Seafood exporting businesses across the UK that have been affected by the new requirements for exporting to the EU can apply for financial support from the UK Government.

The £23 million Seafood Disruption Support Scheme, administered by the Marine Management Organisation on behalf of Defra, will cover up to £100,000 of losses per business caused by delays related to the export of fresh or live fish and shellfish to the EU between 1-31st January 2021.

Funding will be paid retrospectively to cover losses incurred to businesses with fewer than 250 employees, an annual turnover of under £36 million, and less than £18m on their balance sheet. The call for applications closes on 28 February 2021.
