Good Fish have completed investment projects that were 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.
The funding we have received from BIM through the European Maritime Fisheries Fund will enable us to target European & US market and increase our production capacity by 15%. We are proud to employ 90 people in Cork and with this additional investment, we are looking forward to growing over business further over the next 5 years.
Good Fish are one of a number of companies that will receive funding under the European Maritime Fisheries Fund (EMFF) in 2020. 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.
