Eligible projects can obtain between 50 and 80 per cent grant funding of the total project cost. The deadline to apply is March 31, 2019, however project applications will have to be submitted before this date.

The funding can be used to support a range of projects including development of small-scale infrastructure at ports and harbours; adding value to fisheries products, for example, through marketing, branding and processing; the retention and creation of jobs; aquaculture and marine-based industries; promoting cooperation and innovation; and enhancing and conserving the marine environment.
