BIM has called for interested whitefish fishing vessel owners to apply for the Brexit Voluntary Permanent Cessation Scheme

An Bord Iascaigh Mhara (BIM) has called for whitefish fishing vessel owners who have an interest in exiting the industry to apply for the Brexit Voluntary Permanent Cessation Scheme.

Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Charlie McConalogue has announced a new Brexit mitigation scheme for the whitefish fleet which has been negatively impacted by the reduction in quotas arising from the Trade and Cooperation Agreement.

As by the recommendation from the Seafood Sector Task Force, the Brexit Voluntary Permanent Cessation Scheme is designed to restore balance between fishing fleet capacity and available quotas and delivers.

This scheme is scheduled to open in early September. In the meantime BIM invite expressions of interest from those considering scrapping their vessel. BIM will send regular updates with information about the scheme to those who express interest, until such time as the scheme is open for applications.

 

Note that: 

  • Feedback will not be provided with regard to whether or not you are eligible for the scheme, or what grant aid you may be entitled to. However, we will be keeping in touch to let you know when we expect the scheme to open for applications and how various aspects of the scheme will work.
  • Registering an expression of interest does not give any preferential access to applications to the scheme itself.
  • It is not mandatory to record an expression of interest in order to have access to the scheme once it opens.
