Argyll and Ayrshire Fisheries Local Action Group

Welcome to the Argyll & Ayrshire Fisheries Local Action Group (FLAG).
The FLAG, is made up of representatives from a wide range of public, private and community sector organisations with an interest in the vitality of fishing communities throughout the area. 
​As we move forward FLAG members will oversee the delivery of the European Maritime Fisheries Fund (EMFF) - allocating grants of up to 50% of total eligible project costs, to projects that have a direct link to fishing or aquaculture and promote the sustainable economic development of traditional fishing communities. 
Applications will be assessed against EMFF eligibility criteria, the project’s contribution towards the Argyll and Ayrshire FLAG objective and priorities and the level of community benefit that will be delivered.
Argyll and the Islands LEADER are the Lead Administrative Partner for the programme. Argyll and Ayrshire FLAG is also part financed by the Scottish Government and the European Community LEADER 2014-2020 programme.
