Goatsbridge Fish Processors are one of a number of companies that will receive funding under the European Maritime Fisheries Fund (EMFF) in 2017. 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.
