Are you a small-scale coastal fisherman? Then we have just published a leaflet that could interest you!

Did you know that the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) can support you throughout your professional life and even beyond, by contributing to the development of your fishing community?

The EMFF can help you to train yourself or your partner, hire a trainee or  buy your first own boat, new fishing gear, new engines or on-board equipment. It can also help you improve your fishing practices, add value to your catch or diversify your economic activities.

As a small-scale coastal fisherman using a fishing vessel of less than 12m overall length with no towed gear, you can benefit from preferential conditions and higher rates of public support under certain conditions.
