The Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food has subsidies worth up to €520,000 for associations that represent the fishing and aquaculture sector for the year 2021.

“The subsidies will be awarded to national associative entities for the performance of representation activities before the General State Administration, before the European Union and before international institutions, as well as for carrying out specific activities of special interest to the fishing sector at the national and international level,” the government said.

These actions that can be subsidised include the organisation and participation in congresses, seminars and assemblies and the carrying out of activities whose purpose is to achieve a greater integration of women in the fishing sector and all those that favour research and technological development in said sector.
