The Crown Estate formally established a marine stewardship programme in 2000 following allocation of funding by the Board of The Crown Estate. This provides funding for community initiatives, education programmes, aquaculture research, seabed research and the renewable communities fund.

Prior to 2000, funding for stewardship initiatives was provided via a number of different programmes. The introduction of the marine stewardship programme led to a more co-ordinated approach and a single budget stream.

The funding awarded under the marine stewardship programme is as follows:

2004–05 (27)358,000
2003–04 496,000
2002–03 462,000
2001–02 411,000
2000–01 383,000
1999–2000 341,000
1998–99 304,000

(27) As of 1 September 2004.

Information before 1998 is not available as it is either unavailable in an easily identifiable format, or it is outside the statutory period for which financial records are kept.
