Innovative Shellfish Handling Program
The objective of the Innovative Shellfish Handling Program (ISH) is to facilitate the growth, profitability, productivity, and operational efficiency of the BC shellfish aquaculture industry. The ISH contribution covers up to 50% of project costs and will be provided directly to approved applications for new, upgrading, or expansion projects.
Eligible projects, for example, could include machinery, equipment, tools, culture infrastructure, value-added services, etc. The total program funding available to any single applicant is capped at $300,000.00 for the sum of accepted ISH projects throughout the three-year BCSRIF. A single project seeking an incentive contribution greater than $100,000.00 must have demonstrable industry-wide benefits.
This first round of applications is open from 3 September 2021 to 8 October 2021; applications will only be adjudicated after October 8th 2021. We will be available for feedback and support during the application window.
