Port Infrastructure and Facilities

This measure provides investment for the development of fishing port infrastructure and dedicated service facilities. The scheme is mainly directed at public sector projects and is aimed at supporting the expansion of fish landings, aquaculture and ancillary industries and at economic renewal in coastal regions.

A total investment of £18.6 million will be undertaken over the period of the programme. Actions include:

  • Developing infrastructure and facilities at priority fishery harbour centres to cater for demand.
  • Upgrading and preserving local harbour infrastructure.
  • Providing equipment and other essential service facilities.
  • Establishing an adequate and reliable ice supply network.
  • ensuring better and safer access at mainland and island harbours.

Overall administration of the programme is the responsibility of:
The Department of the Marine and Natural Resources and Department of Arts, Heritage, Gaeltacht and the Islands.
