National Fisherman


FISHING research projects in New England and the Mid-Atlantic are expected to receive nearly $5.6 million in federal funding, NOAA Fisheries has announced.
 
This latest boost follows a $75-million allocation to a number of fishing disaster areas in the United States.
 
Under the Saltonstall-Kennedy Grant Programme, which is administered by NOAA Fisheries, funding will be made available to provide financial assistance for research and development projects that benefit the US fishing industry.
 
Of these funds, $2.3 million would support projects to benefit the groundfish industry.
 
Funding will be made available to projects following review by NOAA’s Office of Acquisition and Grants, which is expected to be completed shortly.
