  • Description:
    The Virginia Fishery Resource Grant Program (VFRGP) enables members of Virginia’s seafood industries to develop ideas to protect and enhance the Commonwealth’s coastal and marine resources. Since its inception in 1999, the annually funded program has supported 115 projects, five of which were approved to start in 2016. These projects enable members of seafood industries to pursue ideas for increasing efficiency and sustainability that will benefit the entire industry, without personally bearing the cost and high risk. The VFRGP is coordinated by Virginia Institute of Marine Science, Marine Advisory Services, in partnership with Virginia Sea Grant Marine Extension Program, and operates with the aid of a VFRGP Advisory Board. Since its inception, the program has funded 115 individual one-or two-year proposals. VFRGP was initiated by the Virginia Legislature (House Bill No. 1634) during the 1999 session to "protect and enhance the Commonwealth’s coastal fishery resource through the awarding of grants in four areas:" 1. New fisheries equipment or gear; 2. Environmental pilot studies on issues including water quality and fisheries habitat; 3. Aquaculture or Mariculture of marine-dependent species; and 4. Seafood technology.
