Applications from first time visitors are particularity welcome.

Libby Woodhatch, the chief executive of Seafood Scotland said of the scheme: “We feel it is highly appropriate for fishermen to see what is being produced in other countries, and how seafood is presented to buyers and the public. I am confident there will be a good response from the industry.”

Applicants will be eligible for 20 percent funding towards their ESE 2005 expenses and must register for the scheme in advance. For more information visit: or call 0131-5579344.
