Sustainable fishing

A NEW fund has been launched to support projects encouraging the sustainable development of fishing areas in Angus. The Angus European Fisheries Fund offers finance for projects which are innovative and offer area-wide benefit and long term sustainability.

This include projects that will attract investment and new business into the area; create new jobs outside the fisheries sector; train people for new trades; promote eco-tourism; promote products with low environmental impact; offer workshops or exhibitions on using local sea produce or introduce young people to the fishing industry.

The eligible area in Angus runs from north of Montrose to Monifieth.
