Morgans Fine Fish have completed significant investment to date. The project was part funded by the Irish Government and the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund under the Seafood Capital Investment Scheme and was administered by Bord Iascaigh Mhara (BIM), Ireland’s Seafood Development Agency.
Morgans Fine Fish are one of a number of companies that will receive funding under the European Maritime Fisheries Fund (EMFF) in 2018. The overall funding programme which runs from 2014-2020 was adopted by the European Commission in December 2015 and launched in January 2016 by the Minister for Agriculture Food and the Marine. The Programme provides €240m in funding to the seafood sector (fisheries, aquaculture and seafood processing) over the period 2014 to 2020. The Programme is co-funded by the Exchequer and the EU.
“Morgans Fine Fish are committed to investing in technological advances and efficiencies in order to maintain a state of the art processing facility. We envisage that the funding we have received from BIM through the European Maritime Fisheries Fund will allow us to target further export markets and also increase employment numbers at our rural location.”
