A commercial fish processing facility that serves the Montauk commercial fishing fleet will receive a $120,000 state grant to fund a project to rebuild the plant following an electrical fire and expand it, New York State Assemblyman Fred W. Thiele Jr. said on Thursday in a statement applauding the award.
 
Montauk Fish Dock, a fish unloading, packing, processing and distribution facility, will receive the sum from Empire State Development. The grant is intended to help fund the purchase of machinery and equipment and renovate the dock, much of which was destroyed in the 2012 fire.
 
The entire reconstruction and upgrade is expected to cost nearly $560,000, the assemblyman’s office said.
