Fisheries

As an Island nation, fishing has always been economically and socially important to our country. Ireland’s proximity to the rich, productive seas of the North East Atlantic provides an ideal resource on which to continue to develop the seafood sector. Ireland’s coastline, inshore and offshore waters contain some of the largest and most valuable sea fisheries resources in Europe.The NMPF supports management of sea-fisheries resources consistent with relevant environmental sustainability considerations and the development of the sector’s economic and social contribution to rural and coastal communities. The NMPF’s objectives in this sector include continuing to develop a sustainable seafood sector focused on competitiveness and innovation, with growth driven by a skilled workforce delivering value added products in line with market demands; promotion of a sustainable, profitable and self-reliant industry; sustaining primary food producers contributing to food security at a national and European level. The evaluation of potential impacts on any commercial sea fishing activities needs to be given full consideration. Engagement with the fishing industry and other relevant stakeholders should occur as early as possible in planning or proposal-related processes to afford a chance for proper consideration of the industry’s views.
