About North of Tyne FLAG

The north of Tyne FLAG aim has translated into four objectives:

Engaging with fishermen, the fishing industry and communities to produce projects that support the sustainable development of fishing and aquaculture.

Bringing together a partnership of public, private, voluntary and community sector representatives to support the delivery of the strategy - delivering a community-led local development approach in the context of fishing and aquaculture.

Ensuring the economic viability of fishermen’s livelihoods, supporting the diversification of local economies dependent on fisheries and aquaculture into other sectors of the marine economy, and driving sustainable economic growth.

Fostering implementation of the reformed common fisheries policy (CFP).

Projects supported by the FLAG must be delivered within the coastal area from North Shields to Berwick-upon-Tweed.
