Scottish Marine Environmental Enhancement Fund (SMEEF)

Enabling investment in tangible, effective marine and coastal restoration projects

The Scottish Marine Environmental Enhancement Fund (SMEEF) is a new and exciting approach to funding. The Fund, which is managed by a Steering Group of NatureScot, Marine Scotland and Crown Estate Scotland, will accept voluntary donations from users of the marine environment such as shipping, aquaculture, fisheries, renewable energy, oil and gas, and use it to create a grant pot for projects which enhance the natural capital these sectors rely on.

The Fund opened for enquiries and donations on 11th May 2022. For further information view the dedicated SMEEF website, or download the SMEEF Prospectus. You can also contact the team by emailing [email protected], or calling 07717 571762.
