FaSS

Fisheries and Seafood Scheme

Online Applications and Claims System

 

The Fisheries and Seafood Scheme (FaSS) has relaunched to help support the long-term sustainability, resilience, and prosperity of the
seafood sector across England. Improvements this year include simplified guidance, enhanced levels of funding for micro-entities and
funding that is better targeted at the sector’s needs. Regular reviews will ensure FaSS continues to evolve over the next three years to
reflect feedback from across the sector, evolving policies and the needs of the industry. Ongoing IT improvements will be made to the
FaSS online application and claims system over the coming weeks and months to simplify the system and improve your application
experience

  • Measure M1: Limiting the environmental impact of fishing – As funding is provided for reducing environmental impacts and
    protecting the marine environment through other measures in the scheme. In addition, there may be a future funding
