Scots fishing industry promised ‘brighter future’ as UK Government launch £75m fund

SCOTS fishing firms are being promised a “bright future” ahead of the New Year with the announcement of a £75m investment fund.

The UK Government has launched the multimillion-pound pot today with the aim of modernising the industry across the four nations and attracting more people into skilled jobs.

Ministers say the investment, which will be open to bids from companies across Scotland, Wales, England and Northern Ireland, will strengthen the sector’s ability to land more fish in the UK and bring produce to market.
