The UK government’s Seafood Innovation Fund (SIF) is a research and development (R&D) fund that launched in July 2019. The SIF programme is now part of the UK Seafood Fund under the Science and Innovation pillar.

The fund is administered by the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (Cefas) on behalf of the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra).
