The FISP Network updates

The fishing industry have been responding to the Fisheries Industry Science Partnership (FISP) Network

with their ideas for research projects that fulfil the criteria of Defra’s £10 million Fisheries Industry Science Partnership (FISP) scheme.

The Network, on behalf of the industry, is now working with the scientific community to develop these ideas further and obtain funding.

The Fishing Animateurs identify and collate industry-driven ideas, connect industry with academic institutes, and help to write grant application bids.

Fishing into the Future can help to develop the ideas further by supporting stakeholder relationships and facilitating knowledge sharing between industry, science and government.

The Fishmongers’ Company’s Fisheries Charitable Trust offer match-funding for bids nurtured through the FISP network and approved under the FISP scheme. Funds are capped at £2,000 for Part A and £30,000 for Part B of the FISP scheme

More information about the FISP scheme can be found on the UK Government website
