The review highlights the work of EFF in 2012 and includes brief articles explaining how the scheme has benefitted the UK fisheries sector.
The articles detail EFF-supported projects ranging from vessel modernisations improving the safety of local fishermen to multi-million pound port and harbour regenerations. EFF grants to help processing and aquaculture companies to expand and training programmes to benefit the UK fisheries sector are also featured.
The review also details how EFF is contributing to the sustainable development of fisheries areas in the UK through the creation of fisheries local action groups (FLAGs). FLAGs are committed to involving a wide range of people from their local community in their work to diversify their local economies.
The publication includes contributions from England’s Marine Management Organisation (MMO), the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (DARD) in Northern Ireland, Marine Scotland and the Welsh Government.
