Other Media | fishfarmingexpert: Fish farmers given £1.25m aid to freeze stock

Monday, June 22, 2020

Scottish finfish and shellfish farmers affected by the collapse of export markets due to Covid-19 can now apply to a new £1.25 million fund to cover the costs of maintaining unsold stock.

The Scottish Government scheme, funded by the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF), compensates businesses for the cost of transporting, freezing and storing salmon, trout and shellfish until the end of 2020.

Storage is relatively cheap, at between £5-£10 per tonne for 10 weeks, but the initial blast freezing can cost up to £300 per tonne.
