Seafood Response Fund Guidance

The Seafood Response Fund (SRF) is designed to help UK fishing and shellfish aquaculture businesses that have been affected by the downturn of export and domestic markets for fish and shellfish due to the coronavirus pandemic and/or disruption to seafood exports earlier this year.

Please find the full guidance here and an updated press release here.

MMO will be contacting eligible fishing and aquaculture businesses in phases by email to invite them to provide their details via our online system.

Any business that has not heard from the MMO by 21st March and who thinks they are eligible (see the published criteria here) will be able to submit details via the MMO website between 22 and 26 March.

To allow the MMO team to focus on processing payments we’re asking businesses not to contact the MMO before 21 March unless they have a live application.
