The Hastings FLAG is a highly representative body of individuals and organisations drawn from the fisheries, public, private and community sectors. The Hastings FLAG is one of six local FLAG's in England which were recently awarded £800,000 as part of the EU’s European Maritime Fisheries Fund which was administered by the Marine Management Organisation (MMO) on behalf of DEFRA. The latest round of funding, known as FLAG 2, is finishing in March 2020.
The Hastings FLAG successfully supported 23 different projects during FLAG 1 under the “Invest in sustainable fisheries” theme. Support was given to 18 projects during the FLAG 2 programme under 3 different themes as seen below. Details of the individual projects can be seen through the tabs at the top of the page.
The Hastings FLAG looks forward to working with MMO and DEFRA regarding any future national funding support.
