What is Our Small Research Grant?

The FSBI funds a number of small research projects each year to support members of the Society to undertake novel research into any aspect of fish biology and fisheries science that is relevant to the Society’s objectives.

Applicants can bid for up to £7,500 to support their projects.

The FSBI's budget for Small Research Grant is £66,000 per year.

Research grant competitions are open to any member of the Society, regardless of their geographical location, but to be eligible you must be a paid up FSBI member at the time of making a grant application.
