Strategic Investment

100% of supported initiatives demonstrably align with Seafish Corporate Plan outcomes

Enhance Reputation

This programme will support initiatives that provide answers to stakeholders who request complex information on fisheries, aquaculture and seafood issues. Initiatives that increase understanding of the industry will also be supported by the programme, and detail will be initiative-specific.

Promote Consumption

This programme will support initiatives that empower industry to increase consumption, and that increase understanding of seafood. Detail will be initiative-specific.

Inform Decisions

Initiatives providing answers to complex information on fisheries, aquaculture and seafood issues will be supported by this work programme.

The Strategic Investments programme will drive progress across all areas of the Corporate Plan. By identifying, scoping and supporting external investment opportunities, we will achieve our agreed goals.

Strategic investment funds will be open to both internal and external submissions, and we will consider any projects that can deliver a timely, relevant and viable return on investment. Priority will be given to submissions that address gaps in our knowledge and build our ‘authority’ status.

The Strategic Investment programme allows Seafish to target our resources where they can be used most effectively, and offers greater flexibility whilst ensuring commissioned work is fully aligned with Seafish Corporate Plan delivery. All supported initiatives will be clearly publicised and there will be a requirement for supported initiatives to provide regular progress reports, including to the Sector Panels.

The Strategic Investment programme allows us to expand our support in a consistent, transparent and strategic manner.
