The MMO has announced the launch of the Seafood Response Fund (SRF) that is designed to help UK fishing and shellfish aquaculture businesses that have been affected by the downturn of export and domestic markets for fish and shellfish due to the coronavirus pandemic and/or disruption to seafood exports earlier this year.
The MMO has stated that it will contact eligible businesses directly, in phases, by email from the week commencing 8 March 2021. The email will include a link to the online system where individuals can provide their details.
It advises that if you believe you meet the published eligibility criteria but have not been contacted by MMO directly by 21 March 2021, you will be able to submit your details and evidence of meeting the criteria via a link that will be published on this page from 22 March to 26 March 2021.
