The €56,714,000 capital allocation for the seafood sector for 2019 will fund projects in my Department, Bord Iascaigh Mhara, the Marine Institute and the Sea Fisheries Protection Authority and will include, inter alia, projects under the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund Programme. In general, it is not possible at this time to identify specific projects to be funded in 2019 by these financial allocations, as annual budgetary allocations are but the first step in various approval processes that will occur up to and over the course of 2019 within my Department, and between my Department and the agencies concerned. Details of allocations to each organisation will be available in the revised book of estimates which will be published later this year.
