Fisheries Minister Edwin Poots MLA has announced a £360,000 emergency support package for Northern Ireland’s aquaculture sector.

The support fund of up to £360,000 will be in the form of a grant payment, covering the three month period – 1 March to 31 May 2020 and will be based on the income lost from sales of aquaculture products due to COVID-19.  Average monthly sales over the past three years for each business will be used as the baseline.

Relevant business owners will be sent full details of the scheme and how to apply in due course.
