The funding was successfully used towards undertaking an 18 month feasibility study into the potential of sail assisted fishing. The aim being to prove in principle, through the use of modern technology that sail power can be compatible within a working fishing vessel.

Sail Line Fish Ltd is developing two related products: innovative sail system technology and high quality line caught fish.

We are also exploring other options for 'zero carbon' fishing with hybrid sail/electric propulsion.
