Grants for off-shore fishermen.

SMALL-SCALE coastal fishing businesses are being given extra help applying for boat equipment grants worth up to PS24,000.

Following feedback from the Welsh Fishermen's Association, the Welsh Government has created a new Standard Cost Scheme, which simplifies access to the EU Maritime & Fisheries Fund.

Applications can be for added-vale equipment such as on-board ice machines, vacuum packers, shellfish pots and table top smokers.

Or they can be for health and safety gear such as life rafts, radios, anti-slip paint and fire extinguishers.

More than 60 items can be grant funded at a standardised cost.

Fishermen must first register for an RPW Online account, where the claims processes are hosted.

Deadline is June 26.
